The women featured in this film come from Muslim-majority communities and many are speaking out for the first time.

  • What might we learn from their stories about our own?
  • How might these women encourage us to speak, act, live our purpose?
  • Where might we be surprised by places of connection + similarity?
  • How might we celebrate the beauty of differences we see in the story?
  • Might we stand up with love + strength in support of these sisters in their struggle + fight?

More about Honor Diaries

From the film’s website:  “This is the first film to break the silence on “honor violence” against women and girls. Honor Diaries features an all-star cast of female human rights activists. {Click here for the film trailer.}

When women suffer in silence, they suffer alone, and their suffering grows. Only when women come together and break the silence can their suffering end.

– Raheel Raza, featured in film

Honor Diaries features nine courageous women’s rights advocates with connections to Muslim-majority societies who are engaged in a dialogue about gender inequality.  These women, who have witnessed firsthand the hardships women endure, are profiled in their efforts to affect change, both in their communities and beyond.

The film gives a platform to exclusively female voices and seeks to expose the paralyzing political correctness that prevents many from identifying, understanding and addressing this international human rights disaster.  Freedom of movement, the right to education, forced marriage, and female genital mutilation are some of the systematic abuses explored in depth.

Women who were once silent are starting to speak out about gender inequality and are bringing visibility to a long history of oppression. This project draws together leading women’s rights activists and provides a platform where their voices can be heard and serves as inspiration to motivate others to speak out.

Honor Diaries brings together a diverse coalition of human rights groups to champion this important cause, including: Women’s Voices Now, the AHA Foundation, All Afghan Women’s Union, Alliance of Iranian Women, American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Congress of Racial Equality, Council for Muslims Facing tomorrow, Girls’ Globe, Tehrik-e-Niswan (The Women’s Movement of Pakistan) and more.”
