Sundus Hamza: Abolishing Honor Killings in the Middle East

Episode Summary

Sundus Hamza is a woman at the forefront of the fight against gender-based violence in the region. She is part of Abolish 153, an organization fighting against honor killings in Kuwait. This podcast is sadly very timely, as we release it just one day after the brutal murder of Ahlam in Jordan, who was killed by her father in the middle of her neighborhood. We dedicate it to all the women who have lost their lives to honor killings, and have added some links to the show notes should you wish to educate yourself on the topic.
