After the Rape
The Mukhtar Mai Story
Netherlands/Pakistan | 2008 | 58 minutes | Color | DVD | Order No. 10990
“This film is beautiful,…the heart of the film – the school and its students – takes an inspiring look forward, rather than backwards, that is the spirit of Mukhtaran Mai herself.”
“From the tragedy Mukhtaran Mai had to endure, we see the seeds she has sown in providing education and legal help to those who otherwise would be disenfranchised."
“Mukhtaran Mai is an inspiration to all who hope for a better life and expanded educational opportunities for women of the developing world.”
"Highly recommended. A must have for programs in women’s studies and Middle Eastern studies as well as for multicultural programs."
