This book examines violence against women in the name of honor in Iraqi Kurdistan, taking an intersectional perspective. It reveals the links between destructive, state-sanctioned honor discourse and notions of manhood as they are shaped by a resistance culture dedicated to the struggle against ethnic oppression.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Discussing the intersection of oppressive structures of gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity, and generation, this book offers extensive analyses of the multidimensionality of violence in the name of honor in Iraqi Kurdistan. Interconnecting historical, social, and political aspects, Minoo Alinia highlights the experiences of victims, perpetrators, and activists in an original manner that contributes to deepen knowledge on the complexity of honor related violence, which too often tends to be reduced to a stigmatizing culturalist interpretation.' - Aleksandra Alund, Professor, REMESO, Linkoping University, Sweden

"This book draws on extensive fieldwork to examine gender violence in Iraqi Kurdistan as it intersects with the multi-layered regional socio-political context. It will prove to be a welcome addition to global gender studies." - Nada Elia, Professor, Antioch University Seattle, USA
