    Iraq: Don’t Legalize Marriage for 9-Year-Olds
    Pending legislation in Iraq would restrict women’s rights in matters of inheritance and parental and other rights after divorce, make it easier for men to take multiple wives, and even allow girls to be married from age nine. 

    Every year 14 million girls under age 18 are married worldwide. Human Rights Watch works to end the practice, and the numerous human rights abuses it creates, in countries ranging from Afghanistan to Yemen.
