The video below gives a small glimpse into the lives of women and girls in conservative religious societies all over the Arab-Muslim world.
As you can see in the video, during a street interview a group of Yemeni men attack and humiliate a 13-year-old girl, claiming they would have killed her if she were their sister.
They explain that women are inferior and have no right to leave the home without the oversight of her male guardian.
They attacked her for not wearing a veil and said she should be tortured to death for damaging her family's honor.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
