Nominations open for the 2012 True Honour Award


The Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation will be granting two True Honour Awards to those who have taken a stand against ‘honour’ based violence, whether in their personal lives or in their work. By recognizing and publicising their outstanding courage and commitment, we hope that we can inspire others to act.

You can nominate a person, organisation or group for the award. The only condition is that they have made a contribution to the fight against ‘honour’ based violence in the UK. Some ideas for nominees are available on our website, along with the True Honour Awards nomination form. The completed nomination form must reach us by Friday 5 October. If your nominee is shortlisted you will both be invited to a gala awards ceremony in London on 6 December where we will announce the award winners.

For more information please contact Fionnuala Ni Mhurchu, the campaigns officer at the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation.
