Murder of a woman by her husband in Kermanshah

According to reports received from Hana's colleagues: In recent days, a 43-year-old female citizen from the village of Sorkal in the city of Kermanshah was killed by her husband.

 

According to reports received; She was killed by her 48-year-old husband due to family disputes, but after the murder, he was arrested by the Kermanshah police and introduced to the judiciary. The identity of this female citizen is still unknown to Hana Human Rights Organization. It should be noted; Feminism occurs due to the unequal power relations between men and women and the domination of the patriarchal system. In a society dominated by a patriarchal culture, men have more power and dominance over women. In such a society, women are humiliated and have less value, importance and rights and are forced to submit to men and masculine desires. In addition, in this culture, there are many requirements and do's and don'ts for women, and violating these requirements (known as the norm) may result in violence against women and cost them their lives. An example of this is the honor killings, the news of which has recently been published in the public arena. Another factor that leads to violence and murder of women is the lack of legal protection for women. A law to reduce violence against women has not yet been passed. On the other hand, existing laws do not provide the necessary deterrent to protect the lives of women.
