"When Souad was seventeen she fell in love. In her West Bank village, as in so many others, sex before marriage is considered a grave dishonor in one's family and is punishable by death. This was her crime. Her brother-in-law was given the task of meting out her punishment. One morning while Souad was washing the family's clothes, he poured gasoline over her and set her on fire. Miraculously, she survived, rescued by women of her village, who put out the flames and took her to a local hospital. Horribly burned over seventy percent of her body and still denounced by her family, Souad was able to receive the care she needed only after the intervention of a European aid worker. Now in permanent exile from her homeland, she has decided to tell her story and reveal the barbarity of a practice that continues to this day."--Back cover

Le tribunal du village se réunit immédiatement. Pour la première fois au monde, un tribunal prononce cette terrifiante sentence : Mukhtar Mai est condamnée à être violée en réparation de la prétendue faute de son frère. La peine est exécutée. Violée, humiliée, déshonorée, elle aurait pu se suicider comme tant d'autres femmes. Au risque de sa vie elle a décidé de parler. Du fin fond du Pakistan sa voix va émouvoir le monde entier. Son appel est entendu et entraîne un immense élan de solidarité. Alors elle décide de construire une école. 'C'est par l'éducation que nous pourrons faire reculer cespratiques barbares', répète-t-elle. Déshonorée est un témoignage bouleversant. Aujourd'hui Mukhtar Mai vit toujours dans son village, elle est devenue une icône pour ceux qui luttent, au Pakistan et dans le monde, contre toutes les violences faites aux femmes."
