Afghan forced to marry her rapist vs The Islam women were promised

There is an article circulating concerning an Afghan woman who became pregnant from her rapist, and was subsequently coerced to marry him. And it gets even worse. You can read CNN‘s report, or DailyMail‘s take for more details. Whenever stories like this surface and people ask me about it, I point them to an article I wrote a few years ago and that is now here on the blog: “The Islam women were promised”.
