About this deal

Her now ex-husband continued his harassment after she left, but – after years of physical and emotional abuse, isolation and trauma – she tried to rebuild. They each performed in a different sport: football, netball, rowing, korfball and sailing, showing how widespread the problem is. The most frequently used strategies include coercion, taking advantage of men’s intoxication, and the use of force and threats of physical harm.

While state laws do not support this, many young women may be too frightened to go through the courts to assert their legal rights for fear of retaliation from their own communities.

When she was accepted to Rutgers University, about an hour away from where she was living, her husband tried to stop her from going. Despite these measures, rape, whether systematic or otherwise, remains widespread in conflict zones. She remains in prison since her arrest in October 2018, when she staged a solo protest by standing, without a hijab, on top of a large dome structure in the middle of Tehran’s Enghelab (Revolution) Square and waving coloured balloons in her hands. While many judges have come to realise that understanding the impact of trauma may lead to better outcomes, there is no systematic, trauma-informed training they must undergo to become a judge.

Because of this, Amnesty International is highlighting the brave actions of the women and men campaigning to end Iran’s forced veiling laws and is demanding that the Iranian authorities free the women’s rights defenders who remain in prison. It provides a set of recommendations on measures to be taken by States, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, aimed at eliminating the practice of child, early and forced marriage. While the negative marital impact of becoming parents is familiar to fathers and mothers, it is especially insidious because so many young couples think that having children will bring them closer together or at least will not lead to marital distress. Many of these girls are too young to consent and now that someone allowed the rapist to marry their victim, they can legally continue to rape them.While motherhood is definitely a cherished experience and way of life for many women, it is a life altering decision that cannot be forced on anyone. For example, women can be at great risk of rape when they venture outside their camp to find firewood. This is the question with which Kate Bolick concludes her new book ‘Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own. Reiss says that in her community, young women, even though they may be over the age of 18, do not have agency to decide when they want to get married. They were both convicted of “spreading propaganda against the system” and “gathering and colluding to commit crimes against national security” and sentenced to six years in prison.

Under the country’s compulsory veiling laws, women and girls – even those as young as seven – are forced to cover their hair with a headscarf against their will. The lawyers representing her have noted that a white plaintiff in the case with the same diagnosis as Casiano was told to go out of state to get care, but Casiano’s treatment was very different.

These state agents drive around the city and have the power to stop women and examine their dress, scrupulously assessing how many strands of hair they are showing, the length of their trousers and overcoats, and the amount of make-up they are wearing. I didn’t tell any of my family – I told them I was going away for work – and the story my in-laws told their side of the family was that I was an orphan. Casiano could not afford to pay for her daughter’s funeral, or a headstone for her grave, until a GoFundMe page she set up went viral. Thanks to EU funding, NRC was able to assist Jennifer and her son with a safe place to live and legal aid. Over the years, the primary approach of the Chinese government has been to disregard the mounting accusations regarding the potential involvement of officials in these illicit activities.
