L’Église catholique nous a-t-elle trahis ou sauvés ?

The facts are shocking - young girls, some as young as nine - forced into marriage - in a country which should give women equal rights in everything from education to marriage and divorce.
After decades of war, extreme poverty and violence in Iraq - the number of children forced into early marriage has risen sharply. And successive Iraqi governments have tried to scrap the laws guaranteeing women their rights - provoking outrage with one attempt to lower the legal marriage age to nine. So how is all this affecting women in Baghdad?
