Each year, hundreds of young Australians are at risk of forced marriage.
Forced marriage can have devastating consequences, creating a structure through which subjugation, abuse and sexual assault can occur over decades.
But Australia’s current approach to forced marriage isn’t working. Despite frequent reports that it is occurring, there hasn’t been a single conviction for forced marriage offences under our Criminal Code.
Australia needs ground-breaking reform to end forced marriage and increase protection and support for victims.
Will you sign our petition to call on the Morrison Government to work with Labor to end forced marriage?
