OSU-Tulsa’s Health Education and Promotion program will host a screening of the human rights documentary, “Honor Diaries – Culture is No Excuse for Abuse” on Thursday, April 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the OSU-Tulsa Auditorium.

The groundbreaking film is the first to break the silence on ‘honor violence’ against women and girls in Muslim-majority societies, including forced and underage marriage and female mutilation. The documentary features nine international women’s rights activists with connections to Muslim-majority societies who are engaged in a dialogue about gender inequality.

One of those activists, Raheel Raza, a Muslim Canadian journalist of Pakistani origin, will lead a discussion following the screening.

The event is free and open to the public. The screening is sponsored by OSU-Tulsa’s Health Education and Promotion program, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma Health and Human Performance Lab, Health and Human Performance Club, Campus Life and Wellness Center and the Difficult Dialogues National Resource Center.
