This report by CNN gives a small glimpse into the lives of women and girls under Sharia law in countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, etc. where child marriage and forced marriage are considered the norm and families especially the fathers sell their daughters into forced marriage for money.
In the video below one Muslim girl who tried to flee a forced marriage with an abusive husband almost got murdered by her brother in the name of "family honor".
Sharia laws includes child marriage, forced marriage, polygamy, FGM, acid attacks, honor killings and even stoning.
In most Islamic countries there are no laws protecting women's rights, or banning child marriages.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
