¿Cuál es la injusticia que estamos intentando resolver?

Thousand of souls are lost annually in depraved honor killings in my community and in Arab communities in general. Families commit those cruel crimes in the name of protecting their cultural and religious beliefs, The victims are innocent individuals -usually woman- who have committed an act which is perceived as shameful, and as a result the men in their families kill them. Shamefully, they are not prosecuted and the society looks at this act as normal thing.
