Recent coverage in the press has highlighted the issue of child marriage in Yemen. In a new development, Yemeni Human Rights Minister Hooria Mashhour has requested the reintroduction of the 2009 parliamentary bill that would effectively ban child marriage. Equality Now and Yemen Women’s Union support the minister's effort to enact a law prohibiting child marriage and to ensure the safety of former child brides. You can support them by signing the Equality Now petition.
