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.

Want to know more about forced child marriage around the world – check out our blog here!

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

Any culture that allows child marriage needs to put a stop to it. Those cultures that don’t need to stand up and fight for the children who are forced into it. Women and girls in many cultures in parts of the world that still see women as inferior or property of the family and then the husband may try to do this, but no child should have to marry unless she is of legal age, and then only if she wants to and then she should only marry whom she wants to.

I CAN’T BELIEVE IN ANY COUNTTRY A PARENT WOULD MARRY OFF A CHILD, TO SOMEONE OLD ENOUGH TO BE THEIR CHILD’S GRANDPARENT, POSSIBLY GREAT GRANDPARENT!!!!!!!! IT’S JUST SICKENING, AND WHAT THAT GIRL WILL ENDURE, IS UNIMAGINABLE AS AN ADULT, LET ALONE AS A 13 YEAR OLD!!!!!!!

I totally agree especially with Jewish religion they marry the daughters at age 13. Horrible they have no education. It should be illegal. They have no real childhood.

Nonsense. Under Jewish law the bride can say no. The father provides a dowry which in the case of a breakdown is returned to the wife.

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

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.
