In this Jan. 30, 2014 photo, Pakistani Samia Gul, holds her 11-month-old daughter, Shaista, while doing her laundry at her home in Peshawar, Pakistan. Then the polio virus struck Shaista and she was no longer able to stand, her legs buckling beneath her weight. Her mother cries a lot and wonders what will become of her daughter, already at a disadvantage in Pakistanís male-dominated society, where a womanís value is often measured by the quality of her husband.
