Remembering the Victims of Forced Marriage and of Murder in the Name of ‘Honour’

303A56C7-D252-49DD-B9D5-91476AC4D987

Today many community members will remember victims of so-called ‘honour’ killings. This day is marked annually on 14 July, the birth date of Shafilea Ahmed (born 1986, murdered 11 September 2003).

We want to hold in our thoughts the survivors of forced marriage and the victims of ‘honour’ killings and to acknowledge the courageous and important work of many grassroots organisations, service providers and activists to resist and to eliminate these scourges.

This year many of us cannot come together in person, but our vision remains united. We won’t just light candles, we will continue to take action. 

The Shiloh Project in collaboration with SAS RIGHTS
