honor over life

this is the article I promised in response to your thread about virginity, paxetaurora. It's long so I'll put the link here and if people want to read it they can.
http://polyzine.com/arabwomen.html

how can problems such as this ever be fixed? Is it even a matter of throwing more money on the issue, or education for that matter? These cultural views are so deeply ingrained in some people that I don't know if it is possible to do anything about it...to some of these women being hunted by their family, or forced to marry their rapist is part of life, and part of their religion. As it says, some of them even feel they do deserve it. This is just a tiny aspect of part of a life people have to live in this world...
