'Daughters are Diamonds' is a groundbreaking study on the objectification of women in honour-bound, traditionalist societies. The study asks questions about the failures of democracy in protecting minority rights, especially those with regard to women. It looks in particular at the case study of Indian Muslim women in South Africa.
