Jordan: 19-year-old woman killed by father and brothers

Kinzi reacts to news that a 19-year-old girl was killed in Jordan by her father and brothers for wearing make up and talking to men saying: “Better ban Maybelline from Zarqa, it gets girls in trouble. As does talking to strange men, of course.”


  • Amira, thank you for mentioning this post, and Qwaider’s. Something needs to be done, and now.

    The brothers who participated in her murder were only 17 and 14 years old.

    String ’em all up.

    NO apologies, this young girl cannot be brought back to life.
    I stand by what I say.
