Contents/Summary

Summary
National and international organisations to repeal article 475 of the Moroccan penal code which allowed accused of rape to avoid a jail sentence if they married their victims. Amina Filali, a 16 years old maroccan girl, killed herself after she was forced to marry the man who raped her. After her death, a young woman carries out a personal investigation into the perception of rape in Morocco, a country where rapists can marry their victims to save the «honour» of the family. 475: Break the Silence gives an unprecedented view of a country seeking to find its identity between modernity and tradition.
