The right to kill women?

We have four days to make sure the Pakistan Parliament feels the world is watching and we won’t go away until protection from honour killings is finally removed from Pakistan’s law. Let’s make sure attention to Saba’s story at the Oscars is massive, and then take our call to Pakistan with a delegation of influential leaders the PM and his  daughter respect.

Dear friends across the world,

For marrying the man she loved, Saba’s own father shot her in the head, stuffed her in a bag, and dumped her in a river. Then he walked free because of a loophole in Pakistani law that allows  men to commit so-called “honour killings”. But, incredibly, Saba survived and she has created a ray of hope to finally stop these outrages! We have four days to help her.

Saba’s story is now an Oscar-nominated documentary, and it’s all over the news. In response, the Pakistani PM just promised to end these heinous crimes, and sources say his daughter Maryam, a rights advocate, is overseeing the reform. But activists fear that the bill will only be passed if the Oscar buzz is massive and public pressure is sustained.
