Synopsis

Rumana Monzur was an Assistant Professor of Dhaka University, a Fulbright scholar and a graduate student in Political Science from University of British Columbia when in June 2011 she was brutally attacked and blinded by her then husband during a visit to her home country Bangladesh. Her husband assaulted her because she wanted to continue higher education in Canada against his wishes. Her case caught widespread media attention around the world due to ongoing domestic violence against women in Bangladesh and violation of the fundamental right of education. Rumana persevered and despite unsuccessful surgeries on her eyes she became a lawyer in Vancouver, currently practicing at the Department of Justice.
