Honor Diaries features nine courageous women's rights advocates with roots in Muslim-majority societies. These women, who have witnessed firsthand the hardships women endure, are profiled in their efforts to affect change, both in their communities and beyond. Freedom of movement, the right to education, forced marriage, and female genital mutilation are some of the systematic abuses explored in depth. The film gives a platform to exclusively female voice and seeks to expose the paralyzing political correctness that prevents many from identifying, understanding and addressing this international human rights disaster. More than a movie, Honor Diaries is a movement meant to inspire viewers to learn more about issues facing women in Muslim-majority societies, and to act for change. Written by Anonymous

Very powerful
20 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very powerful film that embraces the union of women no matter what background they come from to fight against honor violence.

I was a little bit disappointed that the film is only an hour long. It's definitely very informative and entertaining but I was left wanting more and I think the film deserves to be longer.

Quality is great and script was well put together. If you have no idea what "honor violence" is you will after you watch it.

I loved absolutely every single activist in the film being Raquel Saraswati my favorite and I was left with this feeling of wanting to help and do more for this cause that has become a global issue.

I would definitely recommend this film to anybody.
