About Honor Diaries
For the first time on film, an international group of women’s rights champions break the silence on honor violence. More than a movie, Honor Diaries is a movement meant to inspire viewers to break down the barrier of political correctness and speak the truth: that culture is no excuse for abuse.  Premiering at the Chicago International Film Festival in October, Honor Diaries has since been shown on DirectTV, at such high-profile events as the LA Museum of Tolerance, the UN in NYC, the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, the House of Commons and Amnesty in the UK, and over 150 film festival, college campus and private screenings across four continents.  Having saturated news channels globally, Honor Diaries has been quoted as the most important film about honor violence and the abuse of women’s rights today.
