“Honour” is one of many drivers which can be used as an excuse to justify forced marriage. Forced marriage and honour are a part of a worldwide issue that exists in all communities— violence used to maintain power and control. MOSAIC’s project “Preventing and Reducing Violence Against Women and Girls in the name of “Honour”” deconstructs the term honour, promotes awareness and offers resources for service providers.
