Child Marriage: Malawi| 9mins
Director: Human Rights Watch | Producer: Human Rights Watch
Focus Years: 2014 | Country: United States
The government of Malawi should increase efforts to end widespread child and forced marriage, or risk worsening poverty, illiteracy, and preventable maternal deaths in the country. According to government statistics, half of the girls in Malawi will be married by their 18th birthday, with some as young as age 9 or 10 being forced to marry. Malawi faces many economic challenges, but the rights of the country's girls and women should not be sacrificed as a result.
