Introduce a day to remember the victims of honour killings to raise awareness of honour-based violence and forced marriage

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.
