When people hear the term "honor killing" they immediately think of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc.
But this appalling practice also occurs in the West.
Every year women and girls all over the world are burned, beaten, or stabbed to death by family members because they are seen as having transgressed social codes of "honor."
Each young woman died at the hands of those closest to them for apparently bringing shame on their families.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
