It's not enough to talk about opportunity, there needs to be an equalizing of it. And, certainly, colour of skin cannot be a barrier. In Pakistan, it is young girls who face the brunt of colorism.
Aliya (name changed), is just 15, but has always known that she is the less pretty, less desired daughter, and will have less chances in life that her sister. This is unacceptable.
