Let the girls speak out (2002)
Film about forced marriage!
In 2002 The MiRA Centre produced the film Let the girls speak out about arranged and forced marriages, and this is now available for sale.
The theme of forced marriage has been the topic of much discussion over the last year, especially after the tragic murder of Fadime in Sweden a little over one year ago.
The MiRA Centre has wanted to make this film for a long time and in 1999 we took up the task with a number of girls at a different workshops. Because of a lack of financial support for the editing of the film, it was not finished before now. The film Let the girls speak out is meant to be the girls own contribution to the debate around forced marriage about young girls rights to choose themselves. It is most importantly an opportunity to listen to the girls opinions about marriage, which is why we chose the title Let the girls speak out.
The film acts as a good starting point for discussions around the theme of marriage, both in schools and in other forms of group discussion. The earnings from the film go towards our efforts against forced marriage.
