PakistanRape

Maryam (not her real name) was raped by her school teacher when she was just 5 years old.
When asked what the biggest change in her daughter was after the rape happened, Maryam's mother said she wasn't carefree anymore and didn't smile as often as she used to...
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 girls and 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 and girls.
