Honor Killing: Rana HusseiniQuicklink submitted by Jason Paz Permalink
|Laws alone are not going to end the crime, or protect women, but we have to try to change them, for women's dignity. You can write a bad cheque in Jordan and get a longer sentence than for killing a woman in the name of honour. The laws haven't changed, but attitudes have, among lawyers, judges and the police. They care more now. They don't treat these crimes as just another woman who was killed.|
