In the shadow of freedom : Experiences of breaking up from a context of honour (English)
So called honour based violence is a present problem in Sweden. Although recently there has been a steadily growing political and academic awareness around so called honour based violence, there are still problems in the face to face meeting with the victims. This dissertation contributes to the understanding of these victims. The empirical material is based on five young women's stories about growing up in a context of 'honour' and their experiences from breaking up from this context. My ambition is letting these stories be heard and told as to lead to an increasing understanding of how these women experience themselves and their surrounding society. The purpose of this dissertation is to illustrate how young women interpret their self in the light of a separation from their families. How do they interpret the past, present and future? None of the women interviewed wanted to leave their family and my interpretation is that they all reached a point of no return, a point when they couldn´t see any other choice. I have called this a turning point. The turning point has been more or less apparent, but most of the women had a feeling of”I have had enough".
