Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy Wins the Oscar- Oscar Win for “A Girl in the River” Focuses World on Honor Killings

Date: March 4, 2016

We are so thrilled that Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy won the Oscar Prize for her short documentary on “Honor Killings” in Pakistan even though her adversary, a conservative politician Maulana Fazlur Rehman views the law as a “humiliation of husbands.” Even the New York Times sat up and took notice (As did lots of other media outlets around the world.)
