modernized, and laws for the protection of minorities have increased, even the penalties for the
violation of human rights are more severe; but the female figure are still victims of abuse,
discrimination, and violence around the world.
To test this hypothesis we will consider three Journals. The first Journals subject is
“HONOUR": CRIMES, PARADIGMS, AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. By
Simone Cusack, & Rebecca J Cook. (2007). This talks about violence against women in the
Muslim world. The second journal subject is CURBING FEMALE GENITAL
MUTILATION. By Gender & Behavior (Dec 2010). Discussing the concept and practice of
mutilation on women. And the last subject is THE GUATEMALAN FEMICIDE: AN
EPIDEMIC OF IMPUNITY. By Velasco, Natalie. (2008). And talk about women that have
been raped, mutilated, and brutally murdered in Guatemala.
To start we were talking about the first journal, “HONOUR": CRIMES, PARADIGMS,
AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN by Simone Cusack, & Rebecca J Cook (2007).
And this one talks about a project that was done in the center of Islamic(CIMEL), and Middle
Eastern law and center of human rights protection (INTERIGHTS); and thus to investigate the
crimes of "Honor" and violence against women.
Crimes of “Honor” which basically describes how Muslim women are punished for their
families or community members because they considered to be dishonored by the victim.
The authors of this manuscript also want to investigate how the legal system are linked
with the crimes of "Honor“, and how to combat this probl...

...According to statistics 13% of the women who reported abuse in their homes
unfortunately they were killed days after. The journal makes several recommendations to the
Governor of Guatemala, such as giving a public condemnation of the murderer and hijackers,
procedures of research showing violence, create a database that shows people who have
Disappeared, the laws has to be more stringent about the rules against violence of women,
Finally, have to be placed rules do not allow women violence.
In conclusion I must say that unfortunately the hypothesis was proven with the help of different
Journals, and unfortunately governments, regional and society must change the hard rules that
dominate women and not allowed them to grow in the society; on the contrary these laws
limiting their personal and moral development.

- It is nothing new to talk about the discrimination that is still shown today toward women. To much surprise, discrimination has been around for a long time. In the period of Victorian Britain the gender roles in society often discriminated against women. This discrimination was based off of the ideas that women were the underlying sex when it came to physicality and intellect. Women were looked at as homemakers, taking care of the children, cooking meals, and attending to household needs.
