Outrage over death of Yemeni child bride, 8, on wedding night ...


When I read this I felt awful.:( I have two grand daughters nine and six years old.
We think about slavery and the effects that it has on our people, but having a man who is forty marry a baby. An 8 year old having sex with a forty year old man. I firmly believe that something needs to be done to these people and the kind of thinking that they have. This is obscene to say the least.


Africa is the mother country of black folks but believe you me I am glad that I do not live in those areas where this cultural tradition is accepted. The minds of these people need to change.

Child marriage continues cycle of abuse, poverty for girls in over 50 countries

By Meredith Birkett
Married at the age of 8. That fact alone is hard to fathom. It's even more difficult to stomach when you think of the resulting forced sex, physical abuse and early pregnancies that often result. But for girls in more than 50 countries in the developing world, and for a minority in the developed world, this is their reality. The reality of child marriage.

Faiz, 40, and Ghulam, 11, sit in her home prior to their wedding in the rural Damarda Village, Afghanistan on Sept. 11, 2005. Ghulam said she is sad to be getting engaged as she wanted to be a teacher.

Outrage over death of Yemeni child bride, 8, on wedding night

By Mohammed Ghobari and Claire Davenport, Reuters
SANAA, Yemen -- Yemeni authorities are investigating the death of an eight-year-old girl from internal bleeding on her wedding night and will prosecute those responsible, the government said on Friday, a case that has rekindled international outrage over child brides.
Yemeni rights campaigner Arwa Othman said earlier this week that the girl, identified as Rawan, died after intercourse that ruptured her uterus following her wedding to a man five times her age. Residents in the town of Meedi in Hajjah province in northwestern Yemen confirmed the incident.
