Her Father Shot Her in the Head, as an ‘Honor Killing’ – The New York Times

This sad story is an example of one of the reasons The Halau supports Half The Sky Foundation’s international efforts to eradicate the oppression imposed on women and girls by heinous acts such as “honor killings”, genital mutilation and rape, viz., empowerment and liberation through increased access to education, resources and rescue efforts.

The brave young woman who is the focus of an Oscar-nominated documentary tried to stand up to a culture that allows “honor killings.”
