Resources And References For Forced Marriages

Our Feb. 3 hour on the often unseen and unspoken problem of forced marriage in America featured two big advocates: Vidya Sri and Fraidy Reiss, each of whom found herself in a forced marriage situation earlier in life.

They got out of those marriages, but they recognize that not all women are necessarily able to access the tools and networks that can help them recover from a forced or coerced marriage. As part of that resource network, Sri and Reiss asked us to share some tools and pages for victims on our site.
