Girls' Nightmare in Muslim Families: Forced Marriages in Europe**Girls' *
Every year, many thousands of young girls, living in Muslim inhabited
communities in European countries face forced marriages. In Muslim
immigrant families, often from the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey,
teenage girls are struggling against the pressure of tribal culture and
Islamic customs imposed on them by their parents; and forced marriage is
often their fate.
A women group against sexual mutilation of women, formed in 1980s in
France, estimates that more than 30,000 young girls have been involved
in forced marriage since 1990. In Britain, South Asian women groups have
records of numerous cases of young girls who have been forced to marry
by their parents.Read this article at: http://pnews.org/ArT/FrE/NiGH.shtml
