Honor killings are perhaps the most severe of all suppressive acts against women. The term honor killing refers to the murder of a woman because she has committed adultery, been involved in a love affair, married against the approval of her family or has committed, or is suspected to have committed, some other sexual offense.

this is a very enlightening article, thanks.

it presents a sophisticated approach to dealing with this crime against humanity. it is time for some men to stop seeing their honour tied to the death of women. i have come across a few such cases, and unfortunately men usually get away with it, especially in the middle east and south asia.
