Overview


Murder in the Name of Honor is Rana Husseini’s hard-hitting and controversial examination of honor crimes. Common in many traditional societies around the world, as well as in migrant communities in Europe and the USA, they involve a ‘punishment’—often death or disfigurement—carried out by a relative to restore the family’s honor. Breaking through the conspiracy of silence surrounding this crime, one writer above all others has been instrumental in bringing it to the world’s attention: Rana Husseini. Journalist, feminist, and human rights defender, Jordanian Rana Husseini is one of the world's most influential investigative journalists, whose consistent reporting of honor crimes has put violence against women on the public agenda around the world. The recipient of numerous awards for bravery in journalism, she is a regular speaker at major international events, and has served as a consultant for several NGOs, including Equality Now and the United Nations Development Fund for Women. She has been interviewed on almost every major international broadcaster, from CNN to the BBC.

    This book is a MUST READ

    Rana Husseini is a global human rights activist who is changing the world for women. This book follows her story from courtroom reporter to global feminist and enlightens the world to what it happening to women behind closed doors. So-called honor killings occur in many countries and Rana sheds light on an all to often forgotten population of women who are being murdered to save their family's honor. Thought provoking and riveting right to the end, this is a book I'd recommend to anyone interested in learning more about how difficult it can be just to be a woman in the world.
