The victim, 16-year-old Fatemeh Ghoza died after her uncle who was her guardian threw her from an 11th floor apartment in Tehran, Iran.
She was beaten and then murdered by her uncle Mojtaba Namdar for being "rude" to him and speaking out against his abuse on May 22.
According to estimates nearly 30% of Iranian murder cases are ‘Honor Killings’.
Every year women and girls all over the Asia and Africa 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).
