Maria Toor Pakay

In 2010, the 19-year-old Maria Toor Pakay is Pakistan's top-rated female squash player and the world number 85. Pakistan's squash champion has defied convention to become a trailblazer in her sport. She hails from South Waziristan, part of Pakistan's tribal belt branded by Washington as the most dangerous place in the world. It is rife with Islamist militant groups, while tribal customs often force women to remain at home.
