Urgent Action for Pakistani Women

Over 100 women a year are disfigured in Pakistan – most of the acid attacks are committed by their husbands who are punished for their so called bad behaviour. The victims receive looks of scorn and criticism in the streets. In the Pakistani society, if a woman has a disfigured face, it is automatically assumed they did something wrong.
