"Honor Diaries" is a 60-minute film that explore themes of violence against women in honor-based societies, such as killings, forced marriages, and lack of access to education. The film portrays nine women’s rights activists working to bring safety and equality to women in both the Muslim and non-Muslim world and to provide a platform for women to address human rights violations.

All members of the community are welcome to attend this free event.

This screening is part of the Arabic Film Series and is co-sponsored by the Penn State University Libraries.
