Lent 30: Honor killings, getting away with murder

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

‘Every year about 40 Palestinian women die at the hands of their fathers or brothers,’ writes Geraldine Brooks in Nine Parts of Desire; ‘they are accused of pre-marital or extra-marital sex. Often the women are then burned so the killing is passed off as an accident. The killer becomes a local hero.’

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.
