How a Pakistani woman is making history this election

Rehana Magsi is the first woman to ever contest an election in Balochistan, the largest but least populous province of Pakistan.

Despite breaking tradition and facing threats from powerful political rivals, Rehana says she will not “give into fear and intimidation”.

She has been campaigning for electricity, roads, hospitals and schools in the run up to the February 8 vote.
