In observance, we feature our interview with music producer and Emmy and Peabody award winning film director, Deeyah Khan. Her work has three central focuses, human rights, women's voices and freedom of expression. Deeyah shares the tragic story of Banaz Mahoud a young woman killed by her family due to an order of an honor killing.
