Bill Would Update Sexual Offense Laws, Introduce Legislation Against Child Marriage In Somalia

The Guardian: Somalia sexual offenses bill hailed as vital step towards lasting change
“…The bill will define rape as a crime against a person, rather than a crime against morality, as it characterized at present. It will criminalize gang rape and introduce legislation against child marriage, human trafficking, sexual harassment, and offenses committed against vulnerable groups such as internally displaced people…” (Sperber, 12/11).
