You are invited to hear from one of the most powerful young voices in international activism. At age 16, Brohi became an activist after her cousin was murdered by her uncle in an honor killing. From a tiny cement-roofed single room home in Karachi where she was allowed ten minutes of computer use per day, she created a Facebook campaign that went viral. She has embarked on a global quest to speak up for women and speak out against cultural practices that keep women down. Already one of Newsweek magazine's "25 under 25 Women of Impact" and Forbes' "30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs," she's just getting started.

Join Khalida Brohi in conversation with Lauren Schiller, host of the Inflection Point podcast from KALW, about how women rise up.

"Khalida Brohi understands the true nature of honour. She is fearless in her pursuit of justice and equality."
- Malala Yousafzai

"Her story... is beyond belief. It's incredible that someone so young could achieve this much through passion and ingenuity."
- Chris Anderson, Head of TED
