Would Rather Die Than Remain Married to Her Rapist

(OMG) Last year parents in Morocco filed charges against their daughter’s rapist. Recently a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that (forcibly) marrying the young woman to her rapist would “resolve” the damage of sexual violation. “Moroccan penal code exempts a rapist from punishment if he agrees to marry his victim.” Devastated and traumatized by all of it, the 16 year old victim/new bride  committed suicide. The Women’s Solidarity Association is seeking amendment to this. Rightly so.
