When UK police investigate crimes that are “acts which have been committed to protect or defend the supposed honour or reputation of a family and community” they often fail to recognize mothers as perpetrators, assuming they are protectors of the victim, according to this study. There are over 2,000 honour crimes reported annually in the UK, mainly against women and girls.
