A disturbing law is about to be introduced into parliament in Turkey which will allow men to avoid punishment for raping underage girls by then marrying their victims.


The new bill is about to be introduced by lawmakers at the top of January.

The People’s Democrat Party in Turkey is warning the legislation would legitimise child marriage and carnal abuse , and pave the way for child sexual exploitation.


Suad Abu-Dayyeh, a campaigner for Equality Now, told The Independent: "I applaud the brave work of women’s rights campaigners in Turkey who are taking a stand against this discriminatory bill and pushing back again regressive forces that are seeking to get rid of current legal protections for women .

“Similar 'marry-your-rapist' legal provisions are on the statute books of nations across the center East and North Africa



"Thanks to years of campaigning by women’s rights activists and lawmakers, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, and Palestine have all removed these loopholes in recent years.


“Rather than attempting to introduce legislation that harms women's rights and protections, Turkish lawmakers should listen of those advances in repealing gender discriminatory laws.”

A 2018 government report on child marriage estimates a complete of 482,908 girls were married within the last decade.



The majority of consent in Turkey is eighteen .


Violence against women and girls is prevalent in Turkey – with 38% of Turkish women having suffered physical or sexual violence from a partner, consistent with the United Nations .

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said equality between men and ladies is “against nature” at a summit in Istanbul in 2014.


Following both national and global outrage an identical “marry-your-rapist” bill was defeated in Turkey in 2016.

The legislation would have only pardoned men if that they had sex without “force or threat”.
