Interview with Karima Brini, president of the Association Femme et Citoyenneté el Kef in Tunisia. A group of women and men, independent and volunteer, run the association. Their work focuses on the fight against marginalization of women, discrimination and physical and psychological abuse they may suffer.
The special edition of Flying Broom Women’s Communication and Research Association’s journal on ‘early and forced marriages’ in English is out. In the journal printed in association with the Norwegian Embassy, the slogan ‘Early marriage: one size too big!’ is drawing attention.
Flying Broom published the special edition of the journal Flying News on early and forced marriages in Turkish two years ago. To inform researchers, journalists and non-governmental organisation representatives outside of Turkey about work in the field of child marriages and to help motivate international cooperation, an English edition was published.
In the journal, there are many articles on subjects such as the consequences of early and forced marriage on women and children’s health, legal rights and education; the struggle against these marriages by international agreements and precautions taken by the governments; and the results of early marriage. The journal not only contributes to the increase of publications on early and forced marriages, but also provides an increase in the knowledge of the subject with its many news, articles and interviews.
