In this photo taken on Jan. 26, 2016, Kainaat Soomro sits in her home in Karachi, Pakistan. When she describes the horror of her captivity and rape at the age of 13, her voice is barely a whisper, but it gains strength when she talks of the fight she has been waging: going to Pakistan’s courts, holding protests, rejecting the rulings of the traditional Jirga council, taking on the powerful landlord and politician who she says are protecting her attackers.
