This is one of the ghastly consequences of Muslim immigration. Across the West, we see dramatic increases in forced marriage, polygamy, child marriage, female genital mutilation.
Where were the women marching against this in all of those silly cartoonish marches in the US and Europe for “International Women’s Day”? Led by a sharia advocate (Linda Sarsour) and a convicted Muslim terrorist (Rasmea Yousef Odeh), the women’s strike was an absurd piece of theater. The real violations that women and girls suffer — honor violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, child marriage — all rampant in the Muslim world — are never spoken of, never addressed by the “feminist movement.” On the contrary, they advance it, promoting the garment of shame and misogyny (burka, niqab, hijab) as somehow iconic of the movement. In a heavily populated Muslim enclave in Sweden, a sticker recently appeared in a public place, reading, “Women who don’t wear a headscarf are asking to be raped.” And the women’s movement cheers this?

EXCLUSIVE: Forced marriages are on the rise in Britain with new figures showing a reported cases have rocketed by nearly one fifth.
By Siobhan McFadyen, The Express, March 10, 2017:
And at least 220 victims were under the age of 15 leaving serious concerns over the welfare of the victims.From 1 January to 31 December 2015, 174 children were helped by authorities after the marriages were reported, however in from 1 January to 31 December 2016 it has shot up to 220.Disturbingly 141 of the victims identified were also disabled. Record numbers of children are being forced into marriage Worrying statistics released in the report published jointly by the Home and Foreign Office show the total amount of forced marriages has jumped from 1,220 cases in 2015 to 1,428 in 2016, which shows a 17 per cent increase.Investigators say the largest proportion of the victims come from London, then the West Midlands, followed by the north west of England and the south East.British authorities launched a forced marriage unit, a joint Home and Foreign Office operation, via a hotline in 2005 which allowed members of the public to report the practice. These Pakistani women had acid thrown in the faces because of forced marriage And it became such an issue that in 2012 the Government made moves for it to become a criminal offence.The majority of the cases involved women under the age of 18 while 283 victims were male.The majority of the victims were identified as being from Pakistan with 43 per cent of the 612 cases having been born there.Five other countries were identified as being the source of the victims who were forced into the abusive situations. Amnesty International used actors to illustrate and denounce child marriage They are from Bangladesh with 121 cases, India with 79 cases, Somalia 47 cases, Afghanistan 39 cases and Saudi Arabia which had 16 cases.The report states: “In 2016, the Forced Marriage Unit gave advice or support related to a possible forced marriage in 1,428 cases”.According to the report 157 of the cases had no overseas element meaning the actual forced marriage is likely to have taken place entirely within the UK.
