    Great news. Unfortunately the movies & documentaries of India , Pakistan and other Asian & African countries that win awards are mostly about social evils & poverty.

    She won for the women of Pakistan (To all the women in Pakistan working for a change). Those repressive men in pakistan/afghanistan should feel at least some shame by now. I bet those men in pakistan/afghanistan who even do not want their girls to go to school feel nothing at all???!!! How about those bastards who force their women to cover from top to the bottom???

    This award certainly make women in Pakistan proud. However, I bet she risks her life throughout the journey and the female victim in the movie who have suffered at least twice the humiliation by those men: one physically, the other one mentally whenever reviewing this movie recalling the horrible evil doings by those bastards.

    I bet her life is also on some wanted list of those radicals.

    Remember guys, there is violence against women all around the world, it doesn't just apply to one country.

    Though, people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, etc tend to use religion and other excuses to justify their behaviors.
