As you can see in the report below by CNN, Nevin Yıldırım became a symbol for Turkey’s women’s movement after killing her rapist in 2012 in the western province of Isparta.
Nevin Yıldırım was sentenced to life imprisonment after beheading a man who raped her repeatedly for months.
Nevin Yildirim, a 26-year-old mother of two, said the man, Nurettin Gider, threatened her with a gun and said he would kill her children, ages 2 and 6, if she made any noise.

At one point, Yildirim said, Gider sneaked into her house while she was asleep and took pictures of her that show her pregnant body. Gider threatened to publish the pictures if she didn't obey him, and let him continue to rape her.
In small villages like hers under a conservative Muslim society, honor is held above all else, and women carry the burden of honor for their families. Pictures like those would have been devastating for Yildirim and her family and could have posed a danger.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male (guardians husband, father, brother and even uncle).
