Violence

File:Shafilea Ahmed.jpg
Shafilea Ahmed (14 July 1986 – 11 September 2003) was a 17-year-old British Pakistani girl who was murdered by her parents, in an honor killing. The trigger for the killing, as established by the authorities, was her refusal of an arranged marriage

Forced marriages are often related to violence, both in regard to violence perpetrated inside the marriage (domestic violence), and in regard to violence inflicted in order to force an unwilling participant to accept the marriage, or to punish a refusal (in extreme cases women and girls who do not accept the marriage are subjected to honor killings).<ref>http://www.honordiaries.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/HD-FactSheet-HonorViolenceEast.pdf</ref><ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref><ref>https://tspace.library.utoronto.ca/bitstream/1807/17543/1/cultureofhonour.pdf</ref>
