The law and the process to get justice for women in Pakistan focuses mainly upon raped women to establish whether or not they were raped rather than investigating and putting on trial the rapists to prove that they are innocent. Cross examination of a woman already going through a soul shattering trauma makers her relive that experience over and over again in front of whole court room. If the defense somehow establishes that she is of 'loose character', the case is dismissed on basis of defamation and malafied intent. This need to change. The legal system must put the cross heir where it belongs, at the perpetrator...not the survivor.

The target is almost half of the internet population in Pakistan, allegedly more aware ones. You signing it means you represent a good 50% of population of the country which is good enough case to make a legislative/policy change.
