More than 180,000 Child Brides in Turkey

Turkish Child Bride

One third of marriages in Turkey involve underage girls, according to a women’s rights lawyer speaking at a conference that was called to tackle the problem.

“There are 181,036 child brides in our country, unfortunately,” ─░zmir Bar Association Central Executive Board Member and women’s rights advocate Nuriye Kadan said during the conference in ─░zmir on Dec. 6.

The actual number is probably far higher because many child marriages are performed with only the presence of an imam and are not officially registered with authorities, she said.

I'll take 10 before they get to Syria.

Joking aside, was in the news yesterday how the stupid girls runaway from the UK and get on a bus to Turkey so they can cross into Syria anc be abused, raped and murdered!
