Because I'm a girl: violence against women
The backside of the gate of the Women's police station, closed off most of the time.
Women’s police stations were founded from 1994 onwards by then Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
Initially set up to investigate cases of violence against women and have them handled by female police officers, the reality on the ground is often very different. With limited authority and hardly any female police officers on duty, they don't fully serve the purpose they were intended for. Karachi, Pakistan, 2011
