Summary
VIOLENCE IN SOCIETY. Thousands of women are murdered every year by close relatives for allegedly violating an unwritten social code or rebelling against the patriarchal order. "Honor" killings and other harmful practices such as forced marriage, child marriage, or bride exchange have been recorded for centuries. Under growing pressure from human rights activists, these old traditions have also evolved and adapted to modern circumstances. The book examines honor-based violence, its roots and its evolution, as well as the ongoing struggle to eradicate it in Turkey, Pakistan and other countries, including Western European nations
