‘It is not expected the little girl will be subject to sexual intercourse’: “Feminist” Germaine Greer slammed for ignorant views on child brides

Writer and feminist Germaine Greer has been slammed by Q&A viewers after she claimed victims of child marriage are not forced to have sex.

Ms Greer joined the ABC program’s panel on Monday night, accompanied by Assistant Immigration Minister Alex Hawke, Shadow Environment Minister Tony Burke, Victorian Senator Derryn Hinch and Chido Govera from Zimbabwe – who was almost a child bride at age 10.

The group was discussing new additions to the Australian citizenship test, which will include questions about genital mutilation and child marriage as a way of gauging if an immigrant is ‘in step with core Australian values.’
