Series II


Forced Marriage

Here are two short films which support the story lines of Asma, a character in series II of the Watch Over Me series.

Forced marriage:
A marriage conducted without the valid consent of one or both parties, where duress is a factor. Forced marriage is a human rights abuse and a form of domestic violence.

Arranged marriage:
One where the families of both partners take a leading role in arranging the marriage but where the choice whether or not to accept the arrangement rests with the young people themselves.
