A Study on "Honor Crimes" in Lebanon

Mrs. Leila Shikhani

Abstract


"A young woman's status in oriental society is pitiful indeed. If she falls in love, her brother gets angry. If she marries the man of her choice, her father will reject her. If she is seduced by a dishonest man, the members of her family hold a counsel by which they decide to wash their honor with her blood." (Said Mirza, Prosecuting Attorney of Beirut, 1973).
