Iran, Yemen and the plague of forced marriages: Millions of girls are made to become child brides.
Human rights violations in Iran were brought to light once again last week when a United Nations committee voted to censure the nation for widespread abuses, including what they deemed “pervasive gender inequality and violence against women.” Perhaps one of the most troubling and culturally ingrained of these abuses is the practice of child marriage – which not only plagues the Islamic Republic, but is all too common around the world. The humanitarian organization CARE estimates that “more than 60 million girls under the age of 18 are married, many to men twice their age or older.”
By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
