The AHA Petition: End Violence Against Women and Girls in the US. Honor violence is an often-overlooked form of abuse that shames, hurts and kills thousands of women and girls in the US each year and puts millions more at risk. It is typically seen in the form of physical or emotional abuse, sexual assault, rape or kidnapping, but it also includes forced marriage and female genital mutilation. In the most extreme cases, honor violence can lead to murder.
