Thousands of women and girls around the world are subjected to forced marriages, mutilation, attacks and even murder — all in the name of maintaining the "honor" of the perpetrator, family or community that condones it. Honor Diaries features nine women's rights advocates with connections to Muslim-majority societies, and also lends support and encourages sponsorship and promotion of the International Violence Against Women Act.
