    Lebanon’s parliament has scrapped a law under which a rapist could be exempt from punishment if he married his victim, state media report.

    Women’s rights activists had long demanded that Article 522 of the penal code be repealed.

    Their campaign was supported by the Minister for Women’s Affairs, Jean Oghassabian, who said the law was like something “from the Stone Age”.

    Similar legislation has recently been swept away in both Tunisia and Jordan.

    States retaining a comparable loophole include Algeria, Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya and Syria.

    ……

    [I’m pretty sure I recall Turkey debating this topic as well. I’m not sure where they’ve landed on it.]

    I’m glad that one of the earlier videos is mostly encouraging young men to go. And especially as a contrast to going to fight militarily as if that’s the only acceptable behavior.
