A new documentary is available about Honor Violence, click this link to see the trailer. For more info about the video click here. Honor killing is a form of terrorism, perpetrated by family members who are supposed to love and protect women. In traditional societies women are perceived as the property of the patriarch and a reproductive tool. Fathers, brothers, and sometimes mothers kill innocent women who they perceive to have violated cultural codes and social norms. Defiled women must be punished. The family name cleansed with their blood.
