"the culture of honor is a term for cultural patterns that restrict people's rights, and freedom, with reference to the family's honour."
"Especially important for the family honor, the female family members' sexuality. Women's chastity forms the border between honor and shame. Women are, in other words, the carrier of the men, and the family's honour."
"the Control ranging from the everyday forms of restrictions such as how a girl gets to dress, who she can socialise with and how she may move, to major life issues such as who she should marry."
"Those who challenge the prevailing norm is considered disgracing the whole family and is liable to be punished for that family to regain the perceived lost honor. They can be frozen out, threatened and abused. In its most extreme form results hederstänkandet in lethal violence, so called honour killings."
