Child Brides: behind the truth
- 1 Article
Last year, I watched a documentary all about child brides. At first, I believed that the show would reveal the shocking truth about the young girls (some at the mere age of 3) who were forced into marriage by the very people who were supposed to protect them: their family. But I was disappointed to learn that the show just glanced at the major issue faced in almost all developing regions in the world. Children's rights are being forgotten and worse still, gender inequality is still a prominent issue. So I did my own research and was saddened to discover the harsh realities of child brides, the main outcome was the lack of education and in severe cases, death.
Please spread the word about child brides, because as the people of the future, we have the power to change our society for the better!
