On the third anniversary of the stoning of Du’a Khalil Aswad to death in public and in condemnation of all forms of violence against women join us in this public seminar to remember Du’a and all women around the world who were killed in so- called honour killings.

On the 7th of April 2007 Du'a Khalil Aswad was brutally stoned to death in front of 2000 men, the killers included her uncle and some of her closest relatives in the Town of Bashiqa. The crime was a so-called 'honour' killing; the event outraged the world, as the perpetrators filmed the carnage on their mobile phones, which footage found its way onto the internet, where the world could see the murderous delight of the crowd and the cooperation of security forces. Despite a worldwide outrage at this act, and national protests to pressurize both Iraqi and Kurdistan Regional Governments to bring killers to justice, after one year of this crime, they were released and an amount of 4 million Iraqi dinars were paid to Du’a Khalils family to keep them silent about it.
