Working at a non-profit providing legal aid to the impoverished in his native Pakistan, Amir Murtaza (MAIPS ’07) saw how poor women and their children were treated socially and to some extent also legally, as second-class citizens. He set out to study the marginalized in developing countries where patriarchal and feudal systems often worked to the disadvantage of the most vulnerable. “I was lucky to have had a great education and a supportive family,” says Amir, who set out to do his part to give a voice to and improve the lives of the disenfranchised.
