Honor Violence

Honor killings take place in communities that subscribe to an honor-based values system. In honor-based societies women, especially, are not viewed as individual human beings. Rather they are repositories of culture and their behavior is a barometer for the community’s state of being. For centuries women have suffered honor-based violence in silence. With the explosion of movies based on honor killings, at last, this inhumane practice is being exposed for what it is: a violation of women’s human rights. An honor killing documentary is the best way to understand this complex system of control and to learn about the women, men, and children who are affected by it. WVN offers a selection of honor killing documentary, online. You can stream this content for free, anytime and on any device, as long as you have an internet connection.
