PLATFORM: Brohi’s TED Talk, “How I Work to Protect Women from Honor Killings” has nearly 1.2 million views (bit.ly/1BH7uxx). She regularly presents her work at schools, universities and conferences around the globe.
COMMITTED CHANGE-MAKER: Brohi founded Sughar, meaning “skilled and confident woman,” in Pakistan in 2013 as a nonprofit focused on empowering women in rural and tribal areas of Pakistan. In 2015, she launched Sughar Foundation to help other organizations replicate her impactful model. Like #metoo in America, Brohi is encouraging women in Pakistan to take back their honor and this book is a roadmap for women (and men) to approach taboo or sensitive topics and triumph.
INSPIRATIONAL AND EMPOWERING: Brohi’s story is also about her own love marriage, fighting for her right to marry and winning over the hearts of her tribe, healing the wrong that took the life of her cousin. Women of all ages will relate to in Brohi’s story of overcoming setbacks, challenging cultural restrictions, and embracing her dreams.
