'Honor Diaries' Premiers Tonight on DirecTV
The film addresses male-dominated cultures where women and girls are treated like property, forced into marriage and subjected to female genital mutilation. For the first-time on film, an international group of women’s rights champions – some of whom have been subjected to honor violence themselves -- break the silence on honor violence.
Honor Diaries features an all-star cast of female human rights activists, including New York Times bestselling author, Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Together, they courageously speak the truth that Western society is often shy of hearing -- that culture is no excuse for abuse.
More than a movie, Honor Diaries aims to become a movement to save women and girls around the world – including in America -- from human rights abuses resulting from honor-based societies.
