======BEGIN TRANSCRIPTION======

Daniel Junge: Well, it’s more important that the Pakistani on the stage speak instead of me, but I just quickly want to simply thank HBO, Sheila Nevins, Lisa Heller for making this film possible, my wife Erin and our editor Davis, but please, please, Sharmeen, speak.

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy: Daniel and I want to dedicate this award to all the heroes working on the ground in Pakistan including Dr. Mohammad Jawad who’s here with us today, the plastic surgeon working on rehabilitating all these women, Rukhsana and Zakia who are our main subjects of the film whose resilience and bravery in the face of such adversity is admirable, and to all the women in Pakistan who are working for change, don’t give up on your dreams. This is for you.
