In this study two youth novels and two biographies were chosen to read and analyse. The reason for this was to get a deeper understanding regarding the differences between two genres. The method that was chosen was/is a qualitative textual analysis with hermeneutics understanding and interpretation. The most important result in this study is that masculinity in shame societies is described in multiple ways. We have understood that one man can express different masculinities not just one. It has been expressed in stories that women are not the only victims as believed in the beginning. Mothers, fathers and siblings can also feel exposed for different reasons. There are multiple reasons for this honour violence, it can come from alienation in these shame societies, it can also come from the lack of power some people feel when they immigrate to another country which contributes to controlling actions.

Keywords: Honour violence, “honourmasculinities “ culture, honour-related violence and opression, male dominated (Less)
