Zim Court Outlaws Child Marriages

Zimbabwe's Constitutional Court outlawed child marriage after two former child brides took the government to court in a ground-breaking case to challenge the practice that is rife in the southern African nation.
 
Loveness Mudzuru and Ruvimbo Tsopodzi asked for child marriage to be declared illegal and unconstitutional, saying it is a form of child abuse which trapped girls in lives of poverty and suffering.
 

Increasing Rate of Violence Requires Unified Approach

Violence against women is a serious problem worldwide and data from 80 different countries show that 35 percent of all women have been physically or sexually abused by an intimate partner, or have experienced non-partner sexual violence.

These statistics are sometimes considered unreliable but this is largely due to gross under-reporting, which actually compounds the problem.

While women across the globe fall victim to physical or sexual violence, African women are particularly vulnerable.
