The workshops helping women stand up to forced marriage
by Rahila Bano
Forced marriage is now a criminal offence in the UK but there are concerns that the message is not getting through.
The Muslim Women's Network UK (MWNUK) is holding workshops across England in an attempt to come up with ideas on how to eradicate the problem.
The Birmingham-based charity, which aims to empower women and girls, is concerned that it still receives calls from teenagers who are being pressurised to marry against their will.
