We want to find out how different countries define their rape laws. Is rape in marriage illegal in your country? Does the law forgive the rapist if he marries the victim? Are rape laws implemented? We’ve teamed up with advocacy organisation Equality Now to compile a database of global rape laws. Complete the survey below and help us fill in the gaps

Britain's army currently allows women to serve on the front line, but does not let them join units whose main function is to engage and kill the enemy.
The United States, Australia and Canada are among those nations which already have women in close combat roles.

From 2009 to 2012, the Chinese police returned to Vietnam more than 1,800 women who had been brought to China illegally, Chen Shiqu, the head of the Chinese Ministry of Public Security’s anti-trafficking office, told the official news agency Xinhua last year.

In September 2013, at the outset of the hot and rainy season, Beranimbo was gripped by an enigmatic pestilence. The index case was Rasoa’s cousin, a maize farmer, who suddenly took ill and died. Following tradition, his body was carried into the center of town and left unburied for a week while funereal arrangements were made.
We went to Madagascar because the village of Beranimbo had been an epicenter of a black plague outbreak that resulted in nearly 600 cases.

"The Arab countries haven't paid anything until now," Mufeed al-Hasayna, the Palestinian housing minister, said this month. "The Europeans just a few millions, maybe something from the Swedes."
Two months after donors pledged to help Gaza after the war between Israel and Hamas, barely 2 percent of the money has been transferred

Mauritania fully outlawed slavery in 2007 but has systematically failed to end it in practice. It has fallen to activists like Biram to fight for people’s’ freedom and they face regular harassment and harsh treatment in their campaigning.
Biram Dah Abeid and 19 other anti slavery activists are imprisoned in Mauritania. Their crime? Fighting against slavery. Please help secure their release.

In large parts of the country, women’s access to safe and legal abortion care is increasingly coming to depend on the willingness of judges to rigorously examine and reject new (and medically unnecessary) restrictions imposed by Republican legislatures.

Of course, I’m biased. As a moderately haphazard woman lurching through my youth, the idea of having to take a tablet every morning for the next umpteen years was clearly fraught with the potential for disaster. Putting all my faith in a skimpy bit of latex or taking pot luck with a calendar were equally out of the question, while digging back into the memories of institutionalised sex education only unearthed shady recollections of a teacher flapping a female condom around while simultaneously booming at the boys: “Don’t carry a jonny in your back pocket – your arse will warm it up and it’ll disintegrate.”
Pills, condoms, coils, implants… What do you use? Scientist and writer Nicola Davis explains her choice, and why she believes we are given far too little information on the variety on offer. Plus, seven other women of different ages discuss the decisions they made
