Every two seconds, a child becomes a victim of forced 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.

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.

To marry a girl below 18 years age be declared cognisable offence

It’s very straightforward to find out any topic on net as compared
to books, as I found this paragraph at this web page.

Choice seems sadly being eradicated and the right to marry or not to marry or whom to marry are inalienable rights. Let us fight for this for everyone.

This is barely about rights, and it’s certainly not really about marriage. It’s about child rape and other forms of extreme violence. It’s about slavery. It’s about men treating women and girls like worthless garbage to be used as trade. It’s about the tolerance of this behavior all over the world, if even in secrecy. Fight is exactly right. Women out number men on this planet by a huge margin. It’s time WE stop tolerating crimes against our children and ourselves.

This is so true. Unless we women stand up to be counted, and as you say there are a lot of us, little will really change. Sadly, many women are not in the postition to be able to do that, so it’s up to us who enjoy such freedom to be their voice. This is not a time for cmplacency, but action.

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 Sustainable Development Goal 5.3 to end this slavery practice by 2030.
