Honor Killings in the Modern World: Laila Anwarzai Ayoubi

Tuesday, October 3, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Dr. Laila Anwarzai Ayoubi, associate professor at Martin University and adjunct professor at Butler University in Indianapolis, discusses her new book, Niki’s Honor, a powerful story about honor killing practices still occurring in many parts of the world against girls and women. The author, a former journalist and diplomat from Afghanistan, is a past recipient of the International Women Award. Her 2015 novel, inspired by a student’s interest in the topic, is based on the true story of a young Pashtun girl trapped by cultural traditions in her Soviet-controlled country. Dr. Ayoubi holds a Ph.D. in philosophy in international relations from Preston University, a master’s in near Easter languages and culture from Indiana University, master’s and bachelor’s degrees in English from Martin University, and a bachelor’s in French and journalism from Kabul University.
