Drafting Legislation on Forced and Child Marriage
last updated October 2014
 

In partnership with UN Women, The Advocates for Human Rights created the following sections for UN Women's Virtual Knowledge Centre to End Violence against Women and Girls. This section, along with sections addressing other forms of violence against women and girls, may be found under Legislation at www.endvawnow.org.

 
Throughout this section on Drafting Legislation on Forced and Child Marriage, reference to certain provisions or sections of a piece of legislation, part of a legal judgment, or aspect of a practice does not imply that the legislation, judgment, or practice is considered in its entirety to be a viable option. The intention is to set forth examples of initiatives that are already in operation with a view to considering their application.
