Sexuality is a central part of the culture of honor and in order to monitor the sexuality of girls and women, different control mechanisms such as child marriage, genital mutilation and gender segregation are used. - Sexuality is seen as a weapon against family honor, says researcher Devin Rexvid.



Researcher Devin Rexvid explains that the purpose of child marriage is that girls should be prevented from falling in love with the wrong person.

Furthermore, David Rexvid believes that boys' views of what is male and female are colored by the standards of honor at an early age. They learn that women are worthless and should be treated as things.

The daughter should have a spotless reputation

The notion of the virgin girl's virginity is another key element of honor culture. Families who practice standards of honor do their utmost to ensure that their daughter has a spotless reputation.

- If the daughter exceeds the innocence ideal, then sanctions are imposed. For example, by sending her daughter away and in extreme cases killing her, says Devin Rexvid, a researcher at Umeå University in honor-related violence and oppression.
