Early Marriage

“I do not have a job for you, but could marry you if you like,” is what Aisha was told when she went looking for job.


Harassment

Harassment

“Farah, a 28-year-old woman refugee from Syria and a mother of three, is an example of the problem. Farah told me that on one occasion she preferred to endure thirst for a whole day until her husband returned from work, rather than contacting the company which supplies drinking water to their neighborhood , out of fear the delivery men might harass her and her husband’s jealousy would be fuelled.”


Sexual exploitation

Sexual Exploitation

“Vulnerable young Syrian women are being sold into marriage, trafficked and exploited by predatory men, they called themselves aid workers”
