‘Honour' based violence (HBV) is a form of domestic abuse which is perpetrated in the name of so called ‘honour'. The honour code which it refers to is set at the discretion of male relatives and women who do not abide by the ‘rules' are then punished for bringing shame on the family. Infringements may include a woman having a boyfriend; rejecting a forced marriage; pregnancy outside of marriage; interfaith relationships; seeking divorce, inappropriate dress or make-up and even kissing in a public place.
This session was part of the Festival of solutions: It's all about the women. We chose hair and skin as our second in the series , because we all have skin and hair and have something to say about it. So we can have an amusing conversation about hair disasters, and sunburn but at the same time we can discuss the deeper isues around lighter skin being seen as more socailly acceptable.
