Forced marriage victims’ calls going unanswered

Calls for help from forced marriage victims are being ignored because the British Government has cut funding to a new emergency hotline dedicated to helping women escape so-called “honor violence”: the staff, who are all survivors of honor violence, have since missed 70 calls– the equivalent of three cries for help from potential forced marriage victims going unanswered every day.
