    But for Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and even the Middle East countries, this is an accepted way of life.

    Maybe you can consider these ladies lucky in the sense they are not dead.

    There have been some recent cases where some women have been lured back to their homeland only to be murdered, for dishonouring the family.

    It must have taken alot of courage for these woman to be photographed, and in this case its true, a picture is worth a thousand words.

    A truely inspiring thought provoking series of photographs.

    Cheers .....

    half knowledge is dangerous.
    If you do not know for sure, and only based on hearsay, better not making such statement.

    It's really disturbing. I wonder how the photographer managed to summon his courage to cover this story. The photos are just so heart-aching to view.

    It's horrible, but unfortunately it's reality for people in certain parts of the world. Many of these cases are due to deep-rooted tribal traditions, often in regions beyond the reach of government policing. Either that, or the local authorities choose to ignore.

    One can only hope that such an exposure will increase awareness, cause enough outrage to pressure local governments to do something about it. But this is optimistic thinking, at best...

    It's not an accepted way of life in those countries, where did you hear that? Don't be so fast in making assumptions...........

    Or was it because you read these things happening in those regions as written by the media you think it happens only there?

    Very heart wrenching. The last photo says it all. These acid attacks really do a lot of damage. No one should be committing these atrocities against another human. Very insightful of the author to show us another type of terrorism.

    You may need to rephrase your sentence. Nowhere can this type of behaviour be accepted. South Asia and Arabs men may appear more chavanistic but they do treat women with respect. In some Middle Eastern countries, arab women do not even have to queue. Even when there is a long queue. They can walk all the way to the front and no men will utter a sigle word of complain.

    Its comes from perspective ....

    There are many many instances of reports on newspapers of *honour killings* because someone has spurned another, and family members have taken it upon themselves to keep the family honour.

    Whether this is right or wrong, whom is to say.

    As someone has pointed out, in some places its deep-seated in tribal tradition. While you might not see this in the mainstream society, what about in the villages, towns which are not yet in mainstream society as such, that still believe in eye for eye, tooth for a tooth.

    I have been witness to two such instances of this behaviour and its something I will never forget and is still haunting.

    When I was working in PNG in the late 80's in the Highlands, its still very much Tribe vs Tribe, so you have to be very careful in what you say and do. In both instances, men from A tribe were seen with woman from B Tribe. This is considered taboo, so retribution must take place, again in our society this would be abhorrent, but to them its traditional, tribal honour must be protected.

    In both instances the men, had their heads removed while sleeping. We as expats were told not to interfere, look the other way, you have no choice.

    Reference 2 : Honor Killings
    Reference 3: Acid Attacks - as per the original link in TS
