GirlUp Stop Child Marriage Stickers

While women in the west are marrying later in age, there are still rampant child marriages especially in third world countries. GirlUp is trying to create as much awareness as possible and eventually stop child marriages. GirlUp is a United Nations Foundation, by the way.

According to GirlUp, one in seven new brides is a child bride. If no action is taken, by the next decade, there would be 100 million child brides already! We should pout a stop to this even though the problem lies with the parents themselves, for pushing their young daughter into marriage!

Click on the link that I have enclosed at the top of this post and send in your petition against child marriages. You will be sent seven stickers to share with your friends.
