“Outlawed in Pakistan”

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann discuss their Frontline documentary “Outlawed in Pakistan,” about a 13-year-old Pakistani girl who accused four men of gang rape, risking her reputation, her education, and even her life. In Pakistan, women and girls who allege rape are often more strongly condemned than their alleged rapists. The film shines a light on Pakistan's flawed justice system—and find that those rare rape cases that do make it to court are often fraught with complications, from police non-cooperation to a systemic lack of forensic evidence. “Outlawed in Pakistan” airs Tuesday, May 28, 2013, at 10 p.m. on PBS.
