    Habiba Nosheen on Rape, Honor Killings and Pakistan's Justice System

    Habiba Nosheen on Rape, Honor Killings and Pakistan's Justice System

    In parts of Pakistan today, women are seen as property of men and are believed to personify the honor of their families. Local tribal assemblies, known as jirgas, often declare a woman kari - literally a "black female" or "tainted woman" - if she marries someone of her own choosing or is rumored to have acted "dishonorably." In order to restore the family’s honor, the family or the tribe must kill the woman.

    For their project, "Outlawed in Pakistan," Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann follow two strong women who narrowly escaped death at the hands of their families and are now struggling to find justice and begin new lives.
