    The draft minimum age law is a real beacon of hope for the thousands of Yemeni girls vulnerable to being married off while still children.

    Yemen: End Child Marriage
    The Yemeni government should expedite passage of a draft Child Rights Law establishing 18 asYemen’s minimum marriage age. The government should act quickly on this measure and develop enforcement mechanisms to prevent even more girls from becoming victims of early and forced marriage. Some 52 percent of Yemeni girls are married – often to much older men – before age 18, and 14 percent before age 15.
