A 16-year-old Moroccan girl has committed suicide after a judge ordered her to marry her rapist, according to Moroccan media reports.

Last year Amina's parents filed charges against their daughter's rapist, a man 10 years older than her but it was only recently that a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that instead of punishing him, the two must be married.

The court's decision to forcibly marry Amina to her rapist was supposed to "resolve" the damage of sexual violation against her, but it led to more suffering in the unwelcoming home of her rapist/husband's family.

Traumatized by the painful experience of rape, Amina decided to end her life by consuming rat poison in the house of her husband's family, according to the Moroccan daily al-Massae.


Holy. Crap. Like seriously, holy crap what is wrong with that judge?

It's unfortunate that they still hold onto articles that prevent these cases from being resolved. Apparantly, the Moroccan penal code exempts a rapist from punishment if he agrees to marry his victim.

Then what about the girl? Does she even have human rights at all? She's probably too poor to find a lawyer to fight for her, or the rapist feed the judge with money. RIP.

It's really sad, but for once I can really understand why suicide was an option.

In some cultures, which is pretty obvious by the way, women simply don't have any type of rights and are looked down upon. Its a shame. But its how their world works, hell here in America women really didn't have any rights either. Are we any better?
