At the age of 8, Rawan was sold by her parents into a marriage with a man five times her age. The injuries her young body sustained from her "wedding night" resulted in her death, and her story has sent shockwaves throughout the world.

done. It is sickening and disgusting, but the beat goes on. Time for these countries to step into the dawn of a new age-NOW and to give women the respect and choices they deserve. No forced marriages at any age.

Signed-sorry this petition will not make any difference in helping these poor little girls as it is part of the deeply embedded religious beliefs of -islam -muslim men -emulate their prophet -mohammad who married Aisha at 6 and consummated the marriage at -9 -there is no way they will abolish this injustice to children -pedophilia.

I am all for autonomy to countries and I'm aware that Aisha married the Prophet as a child bride, but if Yemen would like to join the table for human rights and other purposes, they need to raise the marriage age legally. Nobody can consent to marriage at six or nine years old. Noted and thanks.
