Mukhtara Mai has lent support to Aurat March, the annual event in Pakistan to demand equal rights for women.

“The reason I attend every march [whether it’s] Multan, Karachi or Islamabad is to represent our rural areas,” she said in a video message shared by Aurat March, Multan.

Mai was gang raped in June 2002 on the orders of a village council as punishment after her younger brother was accused of having relations with a woman from a rival clan. She went to court against the men and struggled for years to get justice. She has since campaigned for justice for sexual assault victims.
