Hello change makers! Thank-you for all your support in signing and sharing this petition! Because of our collective action, Kmart swiftly pulled the costume off its shelves (in Australia) by Tuesday afternoon, 22 October 2019. The victory of this petition has since attracted international attention - which is awesome! In response, UNICEF and World Vision have had opportunities to make media statements and therefore raise awareness around the issue of child brides and the reality they face in fighting this fight around the world, including westernised countries like USA and Australia. Shockingly, by 2030, 150 million more girls will be married in their childhood years so long as this issue is kept in the dark and world leaders do not prioritise it. If child weddings were eradicated, the children and women’s poverty cycle would improve and therefore the worlds. Through this petition, we have made Kmart aware of their responsibility as a global franchise to no longer be ignorant to such pertinent global issues. If you are interested in further supporting the bigger cause to end child marriage or for more education, please go to @girlsnotbrides_ on IG or FB or webpage www.girlsnotbrides.org ✌�
