By applying Länsstyrelsens definition of honor-related oppression to situations that exists in cults and families with honor-related oppression we have identified the existence of some norms concerning honor in this groups. We conducted interviews with two women who have previously been members of cults and we also use secondary sources where persons who lived with norms concerning honor told their respective story. We used Håkan Hydén´s reasoning about norms and Jürgen Habermas´ theory regarding the systemworld and lifeworld in order to categorize and analyzed the norms we have identified. We have concluded that there are many similarities regarding norms concerning honor in the two groups. For example rules are regarding marriage, relationships, appearance, and the hierarchy within the group similar. But there are also differences between the two groups. Primarily those differences concern honor related to women’s sexuality, which is very important in families that have honor-related oppression but not in cults that have norms concerning honor.
