“Not your honor," a song against sexual violence on women

9-12-2019

On the occasion of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, Abaad organization launched a music video “Not your honor” (Mamnou’ah min al ard). The song seeks to highlight sexual violence against women, as said Abaad campaign officer, Alia Awada. “We wanted to generate the idea of the clip at this particular time, since we cannot isolate ourselves from what is happening in our country.” The role of women is evident in their participation in the protests or in debates focusing on the discriminatory laws against them, Awada explained. The song is a revolution against all notions, norms and mindsets. It links issues with legislations, and stresses the following: “No, I am not your honor, and neither a second class citizen. I am a citizen and a human being, and you have to deal with me as such, Awada concluded. (An Nahar, December 6, 2019)
