“Birangona” means brave woman. That’s the title given to the thousands of women who were raped by the Pakistani army during the war in Bangladesh. Their family disowned many of them; others migrated to India to give birth, while many committed suicide or where murdered by the Pakistani forces. Those who survived bore the scars of the horrendous ordeal, both physical and psychological. Their suffering, both during and after the war remains unrecorded and unrecognized.
