It's estimated that worldwide 1 in 5 women will become the victim of rape or attempted rape during her life.
Violence against women is prevalent all over the world and rape in particular has become a 'weapon of war' and tool to systematically oppress , control and marginalize women.

In Pakistan around 85% of women face various forms of gender-based violence.
Rape and sexual violence is still very much a taboo subject in Pakistan.
Unreliable statistics hide the actual magnitude of the problem.
