During her six years of marriage, Sehra Waheed was verbally abused, kicked, punched, stabbed and raped. She naively entered into marriage as an innocent Pakistani woman, happily looking forward to a fulfilling life with the man she loved. However, soon after her marriage, her husband became her tormenter and finally betrayed her. This is the story of a young womans struggle to escape from a marriage that became a living hell. Despite objections from her family, she challenged the ancient customs under which women are expected to silently submit and endure terrible pain and abuse. In a society that places honor and respect above the needs of an individual, to be considered a disloyal wife or to contemplate divorce is a fate worse than death. Despite having the cards stacked against her, she triumphed. This is a tale that many women going through the same experience will draw courage and strength from.
