Pakistan: Despite rights gains, transgender community still at risk
Issued on: Modified:
This week, we meet the transgender women fighting for equality and protection in Pakistan, the world's only Muslim country to formally recognise the existence of a "third gender". The category covers a wide range of gender identities and can apply to transgendered people, as well as eunuchs and transvestites. But those choosing to shun traditional male/female gender roles still face discrimination and violence on a daily basis.
We'll also take a look at how the environment is affected in the pursuit of five-star luxury in the Maldives.
And we head to Japan, where men and women appear to be losing interest in each other, as they turn instead to the romantic opportunities offered by digital avatars.
