I am very passionate about women's issues because I come from a culture where women are often treated as second class citizens. Where did the notion that a woman's life is worth nothing come from?
It always breaks my heart when I read about how women are being mistreated all over the world. It happened again today as I read about the honor killings occuring in Iraq. After reading the story, I googled and was appalled to read of the honor killings occuring everywhere including right here in America.
I am blogging today to as a reminder to the WIP community that our sisters are being mistreated and killed all over the world and we have to continue to be the voice of these women who cannot speak for themselves.
To all the women who have been victims of honor killings, may your souls rest in peace.
