Human Rights in Pakistan: Naureen Akhtar

Tackling gender inequality in Pakistan leads to death threats and hate speech for Naureen and her team. The survivors of gender based violence she works with lose their homes, marriages, work and family, but despite all this they find hope. We hear Naureen's journey into activism, her passion for helping women to read and understand the Bible and helping women gain their rights in a patriarchal society.
