Last year a student I was working with created a project on honor killings. She posted ages an cities of over 100 young women who had been killed for committing “crimes,” such as being raped.
Questions of religion are always touchy, but this idea, the idea that a woman disgraces her family by innocently walking home and getting attacked or by showing her face, is from another time. We cannot allowed women to be killed for innocent actions. Disown them. Ignore them. Turn them out on the street in the cold. No need for death. We’ll take them in.
