Honor killings of Muslim women in the United States and across the West persist. Is intersectional feminism giving cover to these practices?
The average American might find this unfathomable – it has been about a decade since I last saw one of my childhood friends whose family caught her dating a non-Muslim boy. The last I heard was that she was sent on “vacation” to visit family in the Middle East. I never saw her again after that. I was later informed that she was married off while visiting her home country in her parents’ attempt to control her behavior, which they deemed salacious and dishonorable.
