Forced marriage survivor: A big part of me died during those two years 1

 

Trapped at home, isolated from the outside world, and prevented from returning to school — this is life under lockdown for forced marriage victims in the United Kingdom. But with lockdown making it even harder for charities to identify victims there are concerns that hundreds of young people could be trapped at home with nowhere to escape. CNN's Nada Bashir reports.

    Forced marriage has been a problem since men were invented.

    • Get rid of religion…..

      @Noneshere Would you like to be a captive, a slave, a piece of property to be beaten or sexually abused or killed on the whim of someone you didn’t choose? You have to be a man to even think this is a good way to live, but there are ways men can be abused. Imagine that being done to you, imagine you could be beaten or killed for any little mistake, and tell me you’d still love that life. If you want that, you can pay professionals to treat you like that (without permanent injury or death). But you shouldn’t recommend doing that to others who do NOT choose to be abused, especially to children. That’s psychotic and evil. I’d expect an opinion like you gave from some creep who is caught with a kidnap victim chained in the basement and tells the police it was true love on both sides.

    your suffering is now known to the world. i’m so sorry this has happened to you which is such a generic statement, but we KNOW who you are, so you made a difference.

    They shouldnt even be called “honor killings” and “honor violence.” It should be called sexual killings and sexual violence. Because it is.

    I remember when her sister Banaz was killed by her family almost 15 years ago (this January). There is no honor in killing and no respect in forced marriage. Anyone who commits either act on anyone has a special place in hell.

  8. CONTINUED EXPOSING OF THIS HORRIBLE CRIME ON WOMEN AND YOUNG GIRLS IS WHAT HAS TO CONTINUE TO HAPPEN IN ORDER TO END THIS ONE DAY!!!

  9. Honour killing is a distortion of the term “honour.” Pre-meditated murder is acceptable, as punishment to females who dare to challenge these oppressive practices. Why should a woman’s virginity be so policed and be held as a pillar of a family’s reputation.
    IT IS THE 21 CENTURY.
    THESE PATRIARCHAL BELIEFS AND RITUALS MUST END.
    FORCED MARRIAGE IS A CRIME. MURDER IS A CRIME!

  10. The beautiful tree of religion never stops fruiting

  11. It is diabolical that this practice is given any heed in this , the 21st century. Whatever we can do to help , we must do it now .

  12. I am sorry for the pain inflicted on you and thank you for speaking up.

    I had no idea! 😥 props to CNN for covering this and bringing a voice to be heard!!

  14. This shouldn’t happen, more people need to know about this and fight for these women to survive and leave these people.

    • America just loves the Muslims. But when they actually learn something about the religion, they act all shocked and appalled. Wake up people.

    • @M J 1. America has nothing to do with this (they’re in the UK) and 2. Just b/c there are assholes in a certain group of people, doesn’t mean they’re all the same. Christians believe that God doesn’t want people to be gay, but that doesn’t mean every Christian is homophobic. (I’m Christian btw)

    • This will continue until the politicians in Westminster start to take the problem seriously, instead up brushing it under the carpet in the name of multi-culturalism. As women have been fighting for equal rights well before BLA came in the scene ,we need to bow the need to Female Lives Matter first. Sociologists estimate that it will take another 54 years before FLM becomes a reality. To the BLM people, I do accept your cause, but you need to emigrate to the USA and fight the battkle there . The Slave owning States under President Trump, will take power on January 6th 2021. In Broitain ,the battle has been won long ago,in 1830 to be exact. FLM must come first

  17. She is not hiding her face? This woman’s bravery, I am in utter awe!

  18. THE MERCENARY 2020 BEST AND MOST BRUTAL ACTION MOVIE THIS YEAR NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON PRIME ………………….

  19. Forced into an arrangement that’s abusive, demeaning & dehumanizing.

    As a heterosexual white male in a “Woke” world. . . I understand the pain.
