Syrian Refugee Women in Lebanon Fight Child Marriage

Posted July 9, 2019 from Syrian Arab Republic

It has been a while since I posted on WP, but a fruit doesn't fall far from the tree and WP remains a place that I often yarn to visit. The experiences of women from all around the world, their visions and courage, have always gave me support and patience. I am sharing today a link to my most recent story published on Voice of America, the place where I am currently working at. 

When I have the time I will post an update soon. 

Love to you all.

In solidarity.

Hello, Hummingbird,

Thanks for sharing your writeup. It makes me happy to know there are Syrian women refugees who are taking a stand against child marriage and are advocating to put these children back to school. Such an important and laudable movement!

You’re a great writer, by the way. Looking forward to reading your posts here on World Pulse!

Thank you for sharing my sister, I strongly believe that men are supposed to be our protectors not abusers, the are the one who has all the powers to say NO to child marriage understanding they will be the same men destroying the child life and future. If our men van stand up to this no one can offer them a child as wife, to think that a father can feel a pleasure of destroying a girl child future without thinking as a father its his responsibility to protect that girl child too? so sorry and we need to stand together as women and mothers of the nations and say enough is enough and protect our girl child's life and future
