Mukhtaran Mai, a gender and social activist from South Punjab, is all set to join Multan's Aurat March 2021 for the protest, sit-ins, and demonstrations scheduled for Monday.

A survivor of sexual assault, Mukhtaran Mai took to court the men who abused her in 2002 to settle a matter of village honour.

"The reason I attend every march is to represent women in rural areas," she said in a video posted on the Aurat March Multan's Twitter account.

"I'm [stepping] out for the rights of women in Pakistan. I've always participated in Lahore [and] Multan. It's the International Women's Day.

"I raise my voice because our woman bears cruelty in society. Our woman is not weak and fight for her rights," she added.
