  • Somalia’s Sexual Intercourse Related Crimes Bill has caused a growing outcry
  • The bill has been called ‘a major setback in the fight against sexual violence’ 
  • Some 45 per cent of women in Somalia are married or ‘in union’ before age 18 

The Somalian parliament is considering a bill that would allow child marriage once a girl’s sexual organs mature.

The new Sexual Intercourse Related Crimes Bill would allow forced marriage as long as the family gives their consent.

It marks a dramatic reworking of years of efforts to give more protections to women in one of the world’s most conservative countries.

The bill ‘would represent a major setback in the fight against sexual violence in Somalia and across the globe’, said the United Nations special representative on sexual violence in conflict.
