Hina Jilani is an activist lawyer and one of the two new members of The Elders. She is known for defending abused women and labor-bonded children in Pakistan. With her sister, Asma Jilani Jahangir, Hina cofounded her country’s first all-female legal aid practice, AGHS Legal Aid Cell in 1980. After a year, Hina became one of the founders of the Pakistan Human Rights Commission. To further help targets of “honor killings,” she set-up Dastak, a housing facility for women who are at risk of being killed by their own family members.
