Knockout girls

To them, boxing is more than just a sport: it gives freedom, empowerment and the confidence to stand up for themselves. They are the students of Karachi’s first boxing school for girls. It opened in 2015 in Lyari, one of the most dangerous parts of the city. Now, the young Pakistani women who train there feel better able to protect themselves, but more than that, they also know they achieve more than what their conservative society expects of them.

Watch "Knockout girls" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
