A Brave Young Woman...
In 2007, Kainet Soomro was an eighth-grader in Pakistan. She was from a well-educated family, who owned their own home, cars, and had their own business. One day on her way home from school, she stopped at a local grocery store where she was abducted by four men. She escaped three days later after being drugged and gang raped, believing the worst was over. That was until her country failed her.
This is a story of the personal strength of a girl, but also the collective fight by her family. A family that stood by her in a world where others would have discarded her without a thought.
