Free the forced

United Nations Association of Germany

Issue 27 | June 2013


The UN has estimated that around the world each year, some 60 million girls and young women under the age of 18 are forced to marry without their consent.

These young women faced lives without love and without hope.

In Germany each year, 3,500 women ask for help either because they are being abused or because they are struggling to cope in their forced marriages.

The United Nations Association of Germany and the German Committee of UN Women wanted to raise awareness of the issue and provide a way to help its victims.
