Displacement has had an impact on how early marriage is practiced by the Syrian community. Many aid workers and Syrian refugees report larger age gaps between the spouses than would have been considered acceptable back home.
In some places, the problem of early marriage is leading to the issue of early divorce, said Noor Al-Hussein, a Syrian working with women and girls in the refugee camp. “Marriage under 18 is a problem, especially here in Zaatari, because girls are getting married and divorced within two months.”

Detention Facility LGBT Abuses Investigated by Amy Lieberman

A new Women’s eNews investigative reporting project launches next week focusing on sexual abuse and discrimination of LGBT immigrants in U.S. detention facilities. The series has been researched and reported by Amy Lieberman and funded by theFund for Investigative Journalism.

The project consists of four stories, the first of which runs Monday, Aug. 26.  The series investigates the risks of sexual abuse and discrimination of LGBT, specifically transgender, immigrants in U.S. detention facilities and examines trends and policies that are remedying the problem. Amy’s reporting has taken her to Santa Ana, Calif., to an LGBT “pod” section for immigrants in a city jail and to Mexico, to investigate what can happen when people fleeing countries because of sexual or gender based discrimination are denied asylum or protection and are forced to return.
“Amy’s work helps us grasp, in vivid human terms, the toll of deportations and detention centers on this highly vulnerable group of people. Mexico is one of the world’s most perilous places for transgender people and her reporting takes us into the heart of that.” - Women’s eNews editor, Corinna Barnard
