“The most significant thing is that it is the girls who ask for help. And we must start from here”. Laura Laera is President of the Tribunal of Minors of Florence and like many Italian judges finds herself using the instruments of law to deal with the consequences of cultural differences which involve at first hand the children of immigrants who have grown up in Italy. These are the girls hanging in the balance between two cultures. Her most recent case is that of a 15-year old in Turin, forced to marry a 25-year-old man. Rashida (not her real name) rebelled in every possible way, even attempting to cut her veins. With the help of her classmates, she went to the police. She was removed from her family and entrusted to a protected community.
