As a grandfather, to a very bright and assertive 3 year old, I would never want her to be subject to the rule of any man. She calls me Pop Pops and is one of the most loving and affectionate person I have have ever had the delight to have in my life. This monsterours view of women as chattel needs to be fought where ever it raises its ugly Islamic head.

Women are born into this world independent of men, with the absolute right to live independently as they see fit. They should be free to choose their own destiny. So called honour killings are not in the least honourable, they are cruel, vicious murders.
A day to remember the victims of dishonourable killings would not only serve as a constant reminder to those perpetrators of the cruelty they committed and of the women these crimes were committed against, but also acts as psychological assistance to other women, by demonstrating that people outside the bubble in which they are forced to exist cares about their plight and perhaps give them the courage to seek help from the outset.

It is disgusting and unnecessary, women should have more control over their lives.
