Empowering Women on the runway

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.

Mukhtar took her case to the Supreme Court and had her attackers jailed. Although the attackers were released on bail, she continues to fight injustice by being a women’s rights activist. Fashom applauds Mukhtar’s courage.
