The message behind this cover is to bring awareness to honor killings with particular reference to the suffocation of Shafilea Ahmed by her parents. Luckily the scum bag parents that murdered her for turning down a Pakistani suitor each got 25 years in prison. Those 25 years are not going to bring back Shafilea but it sends a message to the Islmatards that think honor killings is an acceptable way to deal with a person that has an opinion. Those wild and heinous opinions such as, "no I don't want to marry someone you think is a good match, I would rather choose my own husband."
So this cover had a good message, but..... It is just a concept cover and the actual cover features the normal glam and glitz that is Cosmopolitan. Its a pity that they went to such a great effort to create something that would have had even more impact if it had actually been printed that way. I say more impact, as it has had a lot of impact due to its media and social media presence around the world.
