Honor Diaries

In male-dominated cultures, like Saudi Arabia, women and girls are treated like property, forced into marriage, and suffer female genital mutilation.

Now, for the first time on film, an international group of women’s rights champions break the silence on honor violence, in the groundbreaking new documentary film. Honor Diaries, features an all-star cast of female human rights activists.

Honor Diaries is much more than a movie, it is a movement to save women and girls around the world. That includes women here in America who are suffering from human rights abuses.

Honor Diaries will be launching a national helpline for women and girls at www.HonorDiaries.com.
