The Power of a Woman!

Standing up against an issue like honor killing tends to be very challenging at times, this crime being part of the cultural code of honor is also provided the respect among other traditions in most of the tribal areas of Pakistan. Beginning at the age of 16, I never realized that there was ever anything called “risk” or “opposition”. I learnt about these things in early 2008 when after a year of successful campaigning against honor killings, the tribal leaders in my community stood up against me and their fierce opposition led us to halt our initiatives there and forced me to leave my hometown and flee to Karachi.

That is the time my team and I experienced failure in its toughest form, but that failure also became the founding structure of our knowledge - setbacks are to be expected in our work, but we always have to be ready to use those setbacks to stand up again.
