Mothers are the “driving force” in honour based abuse crime, perpetrating in 64% (49/76) of all cases involving women.
Mothers inflict violence on pregnant daughters and induce abortion.
Whether mothers are ‘perpetrators’ or secondary ‘victims’ acting under duress is explored.
Police are influenced by victims who consider mothers as secondary victims.
