End the archaic rapist-victim marriage law in Morocco!

Imagine you’re sixteen, a big bright world out in front of you. Now imagine that someone rapes and beats you. You report him to the police, but instead of being punished, he is allowed to MARRY you instead.

That’s the current law in Morocco- a law which forced a young woman to kill herself as the only way out. I have signed the petition below- the Moroccan government is voting to possibly change this horrible practice.

Hopefully, with our help, it can end.
