Honor Diaries is a new documentary that probes violence against Muslim women including genital mutilation, forced marriages, and “honor killings”, and exposes the harm that is perpetuated against these women as a systematic, institutionalized misogyny.

Consider these statistics: four girls are circumcised every minute; more than 125 million women and girls have been victims of genital mutilation in the Middle East and Africa since 1989; and, an estimated 13 females are murdered each day in the name of ‘honor’.
