Khadija Saddiqi is a soft-voiced, wispy woman. Her clothes and Muslim headscarf are rigorously modest. The only suggestion of her unusual boldness is the bodyguard who stands outside her home in Lahore.
The only evidence of why she might need a guard is the scar near Saddiqi's wrist.
As Saddiqi picked up her 7-year-old sister from school last year, a man lunged at her with a knife, stabbing her in her throat, arms, breasts and back.
"I thought it was the end of my life," says Saddiqi, 22. "I was full of blood."
She knew her attacker well.
