PakistanRape

Location of where 12 year old Ali (not his real name) was raped, physically tortured and then murdered.
Rape and sexual violence is still very much a taboo subject in Pakistan.
Unreliable statistics hide the actual magnitude of the problem. It's estimated that worldwide 1 in 5 women will become the victim of rape or attempted rape during her life.
Violence against women is prevalent all over the world and rape in particular has become a 'weapon of war' and tool to systematically oppress , control and marginalize women.
It's important however to know that it's not just about women and girls, but boys are sexually harassed and abused too.
