Shannon B started this petition to Kmart

A child bride costume currently exists on Kmart shelves in children’s sizes. Tell Kmart this is beyond inappropriate and offensive and that they have a social responsibility to pull this item off their shelves immediately. Please help me get this message to Kmart by signing this petition.

Each year, 12 million children (girls as young as 6 years old - the same size as this “costume”) are sold or married off by their family without their consent. That’s one million child marriages per month!

That equates to 23 children every minute or 1 child every 2 minutes. If this continues, 150 million more children will be married by the year 2030.  

Child marriage means child abuse and torture in its worst forms - paedophilia, child rape, child slavery, child sex trafficking. Kmart -Take this child bride costume off your shelves.
