Honour based violence is biggest problem facing women

David Green, the director of the British think-tank Civitas, warned the government’s strategy to tackle violence against women is “skirting around the edges” of the key issue surrounding violence against women– honour based crime. “The big problem we have is honour violence crime. If you asked said what is the biggest problem that women as a whole or particular women have at present, I would say the biggest problem is faced by women from ethnic minorities who are subject to routine violence.”
