poster against honor killing :To kill a mocking bird


  • It's sin to kill a mocking bird, while it is honor for someone to kill their famale family member who is considered to challenge male authority.The nest is not only a metaphor of home, but also the metaphor of a society where misogyny, sexism deeply ingrained in and there is no freedom for women to fight for their rights of doing whatever they want with their own bodies,brains,emotions,careers .It takes figures like 1,000 women dying of honor killings in Pakistan." The culture has to change,it has to start with education and the responsibility of whoever is in office to approve policies that facilitate women’s rights."-----Rula Jebreal
    From Wikipedia
    An honor killing is the homicide of a member of a family by other members, due to the perpetrators' belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonor upon the family, or has violated the principles of a community or a religion, usually for reasons such as refusing to enter an arranged marriage, being in a relationship that is disapproved by their family, having sex outside marriage, becoming the victim of rape, dressing in ways which are deemed inappropriate, or engaging in homosexual relations.
