Shocking Cosmopolitan UK Cover Protests Honor Killings

Moxie Media Cosmopolitan UK Honor Killings Protest Cover with Shafilea Ahmed by Leo Burnett Change for Karma Nirvana

Cosmopolitan UK raises awareness about honor killings with their shocking special-edition February 2015 magazine cover depicting seventeen year-old British-Pakistani Shafilea Ahmed’s horrific murder by suffocation. Designed by award-winning agency Leo Burnett Change in partnership with Karma Nirvana, a UK-based charity helping victims of honor-based violence, the magazine cover seeks to spread awareness and inspire change, with the ripping of the plastic encasement signifying women “breaking free” from violence.

The cover is part of Britain’s Lost Women, a campaign that Cosmopolitan UK and Karma Nirvana have spearheaded to dedicate an official day to commemorating the lost lives of women like Shafilea Ahmed.
