To raise the awareness of victims of violent acts about their rights; to erase any misconceptions with respect to honor which are thought to stem from religion; and to raise social awareness about the significance of human life and similar issues. The overall purpose is to raise social awareness about violence inflicted on women and that homicide for the sake of honor is actually violence that is in no way approved or accepted by the Muslim faith.
