Breaking Vows: Early and Forced Marriage and Girls’ Education

01-06-2011

This report explores the issues behind the ten million girls a year who experience early or forced marriage.

Forced marriage is an abuse of human rights that ignores their best interests, their views and undermines efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
Tackling the causes of early and forced marriage must succeed. This report gives many success stories.

In this report is outlined what more can be done by the British government to strengthen its role in preventing early and forced marriage and supporting those who have fled or survived it. Plan UK is committed to raising the voices of the millions of girls married young against their will.
