Fadime Sahindal pushed the issue of honor culture despite the fact that she herself lived under threats from her family.

She told about her situation both before the Riksdag and on SVT.

On January 21, 2002, she was shot to death by her own father in front of the rest of the family in their home in Uppsala.  

Zubeyde Demirörs remembers Fadime's struggle and how the culture of honor has affected her own life.  

- I had to say yes, even though I did not want to.

Because I felt sorry for my mother and did not want to ruin our family name.
