Fourteen years ago, Mukhtar Mai was gang-raped and publically humiliated after her brother insulted a rival clan in Pakistan. Earlier this week Mukhtar walked the runway to empower other women who have faced similar hardships. “If one step I take, if that helps even one woman, I would be very happy to do that” says Mukhtar.
