Mukhtar Mai came to prominence in June 2002, when journalists in Pakistan first learned of her gang rape, punishment for an 'honour crime' allegedly committed by her brother, an offence for which there was never any proof. After the horrific rape, custom dictated that she would kill herself. But Mai defied custom. In an unprecedented act of courage, she took her rapists to court. Mukhtar Mai pitted herself against the system with extraordinary courage and strength of purpose.

Timely and topical, In the Name of Honour is the inspirational true story of a woman who fought and triumphed against exceptional odds.

'It is because of the support of the world that I feel brave' Mukhtar Mai
