Women on the Frontline: Killing in the Name of Honour

"Turkey is cracking down on custom killing, making life imprisonment a mandatory sentence. Killing female family members in the name of honour for perceived injury to the family’s standing is a crime emanating from centuries’ old traditions. We discover there is disturbing evidence that tougher sentencing is leading to an increase in forced suicides."

Women on the Frontline: A Question of Rape

"Aired first on BBC World TV, this critically acclaimed series, hosted by Annie Lennox, gives a brutally honest account of the silent war being waged against women across the world.

Women on the Frontline: Never Again

"Morocco is coming to terms with the human rights abuses of its recent past. Televised testimonies to a truth and reconciliation commission set up by the Government have transfixed the nation. Morocco is discovering the truth about wrongful imprisonments, torture and disappearances of the past, but also the prominent role women played in resisting abuses of the law in the 1970s and 1980s."
