Women in the Crossfire

While Chapter 8 focused on grand strategy for awareness that honor killing is incompatible with truly honorable ways of life, this chapter emphasizes specific tactics for achieving a sustainable end to honor killing. The bottom-up, grassroots, and participatory programs discussed here will collectively break cycles of deadly violence. Tostan is recommended as a model for the diffusion of innovative ideas and norms and for community buy-in and ownership. School-based programs all serve the objectives of developing gender equality and respect for diversity, managing anger and emotional volatility, and increasing problem-solving competencies. Community-service programs will enable male youth to benefit from engagement with adult male leaders who do not have violence-prone personalities. Emphasis is placed on public health initiatives and self-improvement workshops for women, as well as couples’ training on domestic violence prevention and financial services. All activities will take place at or be coordinated through a collaborative community-school facility.
