I Should Have Honor: A Memoir of Hope and Pride in Pakistan

Amazon.com Rating:

From a young age, Khalida Brohi was raised to believe in the sanctity of arranged marriage; Khalida herself was promised as a bride before she was even born. But her father refused to let her become a child bride, and Khalida grew up thinking she would become the first female doctor in her small village. But everything shifted when she found out that her beloved cousin had been murdered by her uncle in a tradition known as "honor killing" — because she had fallen in love with a man who was not her betrothed.

From a tiny cement-roofed room in Karachi where she was allowed ten minutes of computer use per day, Brohi started a Facebook campaign against the practice that went viral. From there, she created a foundation focused on empowering the lives of women in rural communities through education and employment opportunities, while crucially working to change the minds of their male partners, fathers, and brothers. This book is the story of how Brohi, while only a girl herself, shone her light on the women and girls of Pakistan, despite the hurdles and threats she faced along the way. And ultimately, she learned that the only way to eradicate the parts of a culture she despised was to fully embrace the parts of it that she loved.
