More Power to Her: How Empowering Girls Can Help End Child Marriage

ORGANIZER: 
ICRW, CSIS
DATE: 
Sep 12, 2014 (09:30am to 11:30am)

Every year, roughly 14 million girls are married before their 18th birthday. Instead of playing and learning, child brides as young as 10 years old are often subjected to a life of isolation, poor health and abuse. Child marriage not only violates a girl’s human rights, but it also stifles community, state and global development efforts to end poverty and gender inequality.

Celebrating Progress, Remaining Steadfast and Asking What’s Next for Girls’ Education

Brookings Institute

Over the past two decades there have been major improvements in girls’ education. In 1990, less than 50 percent of girls in low-income countries were enrolled in primary school; today that figure has climbed to nearly 80 percent. However, much work remains to be done. Thirty million girls still miss out on basic education, and the challenge for those that now attend school is that they learn while there. Indeed, 250 million children cannot read or write, even after many of them have spent four years in school.
