"Outlawed in Pakistan" on Frontline airs on Thursday, May 30th at 7 pm

In Pakistan, women and girls who allege rape are often more strongly condemned than their alleged rapists. Some are even killed by their own families. For this unforgettable documentary, filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann spent years tracing one alleged rape victim's odyssey through Pakistan’s flawed justice system — as well as her alleged rapists’ quest to clear their names.

"Outlawed in Pakistan" on Frontline can be seen on Thursday, May 30th at 7:00 p.m.

When Pakistani teenager Kainat Soomro (pictured), accused four men of gang rape, the courageous young woman did not put her suffering behind her. Filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann spent five years tracing both Kainat’s odyssey through Pakistan’s broken justice system and her alleged rapists’ quest to clear their names.
