“Child brides have no say in when or whom they marry. They usually drop out of school and miss out on the opportunities they need to thrive.”
Ahead of the International Day of the Girl Child, a new video from Girls Not Brides shows how child marriage holds girls back, and how we can work together to end it.
“Empowerment is not a thing that can be given or taken back… when women do things, then that brings the empowerment.”
In a video interview with UNICEF, Ela Bhatt discusses how she thinks child marriage can be stopped, how women can be empowered, and how much the status of women in India has progressed.
