The shanty towns of Turkey hide a chilling secret: a Honor Killing epidemic.
This video gives a small glimpse into the lives of millions of women and girls not only in Turkey but throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
Turkey is considered a "moderate" Muslim state but every year women and girls in Turkey are burned, beaten, or stabbed to death by family members because they are seen as having transgressed social codes of "honor."
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
