Description of Resource

We now know that many survivors of forced marriage have experienced harm that is overlapping with other forms of violence and yet unique enough to require additional skills and awareness from service providers and others in a position to assist. This paper looks at the connection between forced marriage, child abuse, sexual assault and rape, domestic/family violence, stalking, female genital mutilation/cutting, and human trafficking.
