Is this Honor?! (A short Documentary)

(2010) A short documentary film that sheds light on the definition of "Family Honor" and how this controversial issue affects the lives of people, especially women, within the Jordanian society by Dalia Odeh of Jordan.

This selection is an entry in the Women’s Voices Now film festival.

The Women’s Voices Now film festival is, as described on their website:

Our mission is to empower women and give voice to the struggle for civil, economic and political rights.  In our first year, WVN is hosting Women’s Voices from the Muslim World: A Short-Film Festival giving voice to women of all faiths living in Muslim-majority countries and Muslim women living as minorities around the world.

We are a young organization founded in January 2010.  We have made great strides since that time and have earned the support of countless established and respected partners.  Watch us grow and please support our efforts.  We aim to educate an international audience and empower women to bring gender equality to local communities around the world.
