Kafa ‘Legally Bride’
KAFA (enough) Violence & Exploitation
Issue 40 | September 2016
Child brides are common in Lebanon. Some 13% of girls get married before they're 18. Marriage is not covered by civil law, only by religious law and all religious sects in Lebanon allow child marriage. Technically, girls as young as nine can be legally married.
Lebanese religious institutions have long turned a deaf ear to protests. KAFA's aim was to raise awareness and drive public support to end the practice.
