The average age of an Honour Killing victim is 23 and 93% of that is woman. The most common victims are teenage girls who average 17 years of age and older women who are 36 on average. Most of the Honour killings are un-noticed.most Honour killings are usually aimed at women/ girls , it can then lead to abductions and beatings.
