Of course I was jubilant when I heard the news that the UK had passed a new law prohibiting forced marriages. However, who could have thought it would make such a splash in such a short amount of time.

Read this article about a woman who was held prisoner by her parents because they wanted to force her to marry a Muslim man instead of the Hindu man to whom she is engaged.

If we keep on in this direction, we may yet find gender equality in the near future.
