This guide is on child and forced marriage (CFM) in Australia. It aims to provide accurate information on the nature of such marriages and their impact on women and families. Much of the information in this guide has relevance for CFM in all communities, but there is additional information that is relevant only for the Muslim community and may have no relevance to the dynamics of CFM in other communities. This information guide is based on AMWCHR’s 20+ years of experience working with Muslim women on issues such as CFM and family violence. This guide also includes information and research from professionals in other fields of expertise including mental health practitioners, legal personnel and academics. Importantly, this guide reflects the insights and expertise of Muslim women and men who have worked towards the protection and safety of women across the Muslim world.
