Child marriage is a global problem affecting 15 million girls every year. The practice severely limits their life choices, and there is a growing consensus within the international community that it has far-reaching consequences for the girls, their families and their communities.

Some members have responded promptly to the call by adopting new laws to bring an end to child marriage.
