Girls in their own voices: Child Marriage in Nigeria

In northern Nigeria around three quarters of all girls are married before they turn 18, many before age 15 or whenever puberty begins. Because they are then forced to leave school, 75% are illiterate. Many are neglected or abused by their husbands.

This advocacy video was produced in 2016 by the Women’s Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative and their partner organizations as part of their on-going campaign to end child and forced marriages in Nigeria.
