Thoughts on my new heroine..

I watched this amazing documentary on Showtime last nite about the woman, MUKHTARAN MAI. You can watch the Youtube and get the gist of it but basically she was gang raped in a small illiterate village of Pakinstan as retribution for her brother's sin. She got angry and went on to bring justice to her abusers and build schools in this tiny village. Mukhtaran showed me that no matter how remote we live, there is always striving toward human dignity and equal rights. Very compelling story indeed!
