Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this study is to examine what the factor or factors are to why young exposed Kurdish women stay with their family despite honor-related oppression and violence.

We have used a qualitative study process consisting interviews with eight young Kurdish women. We have also applied theories such as cultural patterns and aspects of power by Mona Eliasson and normalization process by Eva Lundgren

With the material from our research we can see that the main and only factor to why the respondents decide to stay with their family is fear of getting killed or beaten.

This study will provide you as a reader a better understanding of why young exposed Kurdish women decide to stay with their family.
