The series portrays. in four episodes, honor killings, forced marriages, and female genital mutilation, shedding light on the severe consequences faced by the victims. Additionally, experts specialized in honor-related issues provide us with an in-depth understanding of the mechanisms underlying the oppression and violence.

- With this series, I aim to highlight a serious societal issue that is largely invisible to the general public. Girls born into honor cultures are forced to live a restricted life on so many levels, says producer Jessica MacDowall.

"A Violent Honor" premieres on SVT on November 14th.
