Ms. Whittaker-Khan's life experience will hopefully bear witness to the toll these crimes take not just on their dead victims, but on the living survivors and on anyone who believes s/he is at risk for an "honor" killing.And I am sorry she is experiencing the same hostile response directed at so many of us who dare to speak out, hope for, and work toward real solutions. Sadly, that seems to come with the territory.Ellen R. Sheeley, Author"Reclaiming Honor in Jordan"
I admire the bravery of those who do speak out and condemn the cowardice of people like Germaine Greer who are prepared to excuse misogyny against women from the South on grounds of 'culture'.
In this case, the price of speaking out could be death. I hope Ms. Whittaker-Khan has some kind of protection around her.
