Vastly rural Sudan neither outlaws child marriage nor has laws penalizing marital rape.
The court is full.
Noura Hussein Hammad, 19, was handed a death sentence by a court on Thursday for the "intentional murder" of the man her father forced her to marry. When she went to her parents for support, they turned her into the police. A change.org petition has also got thousands of signatures.
"Noura Hussein's lifelong wish was to become a teacher, but she ended up being forced to marry an abusive man who raped and brutalized her", said Amnesty's deputy regional director for East Africa, Seif Magango, according to BuzzFeed News.
Thousands rally in Turkey and Jordan to protest United States embassy move
It was the seventh weekly protest, and a preview of what is expected to be a much larger border rally on Monday and Tuesday. Israel's army said around 15,000 Palestinians took part in Friday's protests.
"Criminalisation of Noura for defending herself from assault and, in particular a death sentence, would violate her rights under the Sudanese Constitution and global law". Nura's father persuaded her to return home, however, as soon as the girl crossed the threshold of his father's house, as it is handed over to the legal wife.
"Our society holds women accountable for the heinous actions of men, and then tells them to grin and bear it", says the Equality Now, which has taken up her case.
Rights group Amnesty International on Thursday slammed a Sudanese court's sentencing of a teenager to death for killing her rapist husband in self-defence.
Campaign groups such as Equality Now say they are writing to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to plead for clemency, arguing that the judgement is against the Sudanese constitution.
Wayne Rooney can not get guarantee on Everton game time, says Sam Allardyce
We've not been in any hard situations because we're two adults and we talk'. "Wayne is so level-headed", Allardyce added. Rooney moved to Everton from Manchester United in 2017.
Cases like Hussein's don't come to light often in Sudan, Salah said, because most young women who experience sexual abuse in marriage "don't raise their voices or say anything because of the social pressure or the social stigma". A group of Sudanese and global activists have been visiting Hussein in prison, translating letters of support from across the globe and working with her lawyers to appeal the case. But Hussein's case was different.
Sudan is ranked as one of the worst countries in the world for gender inequality with violence against women and girls rampant.
Sudanese law allows children over the age of 10 to marry.
Because Noura was a victim of rape, many are calling for her release, and for her not to be punished at all.
