Stop Forced Marriage and Violence Against Women

This petition had 237 supporters

Think forced marriage isn't a problem in the UK? Think again.

14% of cases handled by the forced marriage unit were from the UK and 80% of these were women. Every year, hundreds of women in this country are being forced, threatened and blackmailed into marriages they don't want. 70% of women have experienced violence from a partner. 1 in 8 experience it annually. Sign the petition, and help to fund support groups for the victims of these terrible crimes; make sure young people are taught about the issues in school. Help innocent girls escape a lifetime of abuse. Thank you.
