Everyday, millions of little girls from all over the world are forced to marry adult men. Many of them will die in childbirth, from sexual trauma, or abuse.
We are so proud and honored to be a part of this powerful #EndChildMarriage campaign with UNICEF and BridalMusings to help shed light on this disturbing subject. We made a powerful film to help spread the word, and are really hoping that it will go viral.
So today, on International Women's Day, we are the voice of the voiceless, and we hope you will be too. Please share this with your friends and family to help spread the word. Can you imagine sending your own daughters, sisters or nieces into the arms of a 40 year old man at just 11 or 12 years old?
