British Pakistani Abuse Survivor
The shocking sexual abuse and exploitation of more than 1400 girls in Rotherham involved predominantly white victims and perpetrators of Pakistani origin. But, as we heard on last week’s Woman’s Hour, British-Pakistani women are also the victims of abuse by men within their communities. One young, now successful, businesswoman was inspired by the revelations from Rotherham to talk publicly about the abuse she suffered as a child in the hope it would prompt others to come forward. Jane speaks to Ruzwana Bashir about why it’s so hard for British-Asian women to speak out about sexual abuse.
