baloch-700The news cycle is obviously preoccupied with the recent attack in Nice and the attempted coup in Turkey, however there is one story which should not go unnoticed.  According to BBC World News, Qandeel Baloch was killed on Friday by her brother.  Qandeel Baloch is known for her social media presence in a country where few women have a voice.

Her voice was cut down Friday by her own brother in what authorities are calling an honor killing.  There is no honor in killing.  There is no honor in being a bully and hurting the weak.  I hope that this incident is a wake up call to the struggle women continue to fight all over the world.
