Campaign Update:

September 26, 2019: We joined Girls Not Brides in New York to hand in 94,215 signatures to world leaders at the UN SDG Summit! Tens of thousands of your names made our strong global call to end forced child marriage possible.

Join the Fight against Forced Child Marriage

Every three seconds, a child becomes a victim of marriage.1 This egregious child rights violation robs millions of their childhoods, substituting a life of misery and hardship.

Girls like Maria*, who at 13 was forced to become the sixth wife of a 70-year-old man. When she resisted, her father told her: “If you don’t go to join your husband, I will kill you.”2

Join our movement to end forced child marriage and help girls like Maria.

Right now world leaders, government officials and civil society can make ending forced marriage a priority. Sustainable Development Goal 5.3 has put ending forced marriage on the global agenda and with our support for this goal we can help change the lives of girls like Maria for the better.

But we need people like you to help push governments and civil society to make ending this abhorrent practice a priority.

Case by case, country by country, we will push lawmakers and politicians to protect children from this abhorrent practice.

Child marriage is a curse and black spot on the society and MUST be finished at all costs.
Any body indulging or encouraging it with any motive should be punished rigorously with imrisionment and fines.

A woman cannot marry 6 husbands, women are slaves in these religions. Cruel to these children shows they have no respect for any females.

It is a must that this forced marriage to stop. This girls are a hope for the future and also they have right to decide on their own life. It is illegal and unacceptable.

I believe marriage should be a partnership between two consenting adults. That no man, woman or child should ever be forced into a marriage.

I pledge to fight against forced marriage, in all its forms and express my support for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 5.3 to end this slavery practice by 2030.
