Abstract

Based on primary data, this seminar illuminates Pakistani women experiences of honour in Pakistan and Australia. It delves into Pakistani women’s stories of honour, honour consciousness, and its effects on gender politics in Pakistan, how it is related to religion (Islam), and how honour consciousness shapes views of Islam. The presentation will argue that Pakistani women’s honour consciousness was shaped first in Pakistan and then translated into the Australian diaspora.
