Nearly 80% of divorced Indian Muslims are women, shows Census 2011 data

In India, for every divorced Muslim man, there are four divorced Muslim women, an IndiaSpend analysis of Census 2011 data shows. Across religious communities, except Sikhs, there are more divorced women than men. But the gender skew is particularly sharp among Muslims #India #Gujarat #Supreme Court #Marriage #CriticalPoint #Divorce #Women #Maharashtra #Census 2011 #Men #Muslim #Uniform Civil Code #Sikhs #Buddhists #christian #Rights #IndiaSpend #question #Polygamy #talaq #Flavia Agnes #Muslim Personal Law Board #divorce ratio #Bebaak Collective #National Law Commission

One girl under 15 married every seven seconds, says Save the Children | Reuters

By Temesghen Debesai LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - One girl under 15 is married every seven seconds, according to a report by Save the Children released on Tuesday, with girls as young as 10 married off - often to much older men - in countries including Afghanistan, Yemen, India and Somalia.Early marriage not only deprives girls of education and opportunities but increases the risk of death or childbirth injuries if they have babies before their bodies are ready."Child marriage starts a cycle of disadvantage that denies girls the most basic rights to learn, develop and be children," said Save the Children International CEO Helle Thorning-Schmidt."Girls who marry too early often can't attend school, and are more likely to face domestic violence, abuse and rape. They fall pregnant and are exposed to STIs including HIV."The report ranks countries from the best to the worst in which to be a girl, based on child marriage, schooling, teen pregnancy, maternal deaths and number of female lawmakers. #Business #Health #Marriage #Education #Africa #Argentina #children
