A documentary drama exploring ‘honour’ violence and forced marriage, All Our Daughters?

A documentary drama exploring ‘honour’ violence and forced marriage, All Our Daughters? uses the testimonies of real women from Stoke-on-Trent.

Written by by Susan Moffat, Director of New Vic Borderlines, the project aims to increase understanding of forced marriage and so-called ‘honour’ violence so young people, teachers and other professionals are more able to spot tell-tale signs and help those who may be at risk.

Suported by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Forced Marriage Unit – a joint-initiative with the Home Office – All Our Daughters? is touring the country from Monday 25 February to Friday 15 March.
