Honour Based Abuse, Forced Marriage & Female Genital Mutilation
Duration 1 day
Honour based violence is a violent crime or incident which may have been committed to protect or defend the honour of the family or community while Forced Marriage is a marriage in which one or both of the parties is married without his or her consent or against his or her will.
