Lynn Featherstone: Take the Vow to End Early and Forced Marriage

Every year, 10 million girls are being marrried off, many against their will, that's one girl every three seconds. If married young, girls are less likely to go to school, perpetuating the cycle of poverty and maternal mortality. Escaping child marriage and getting an education breaks the cycle of poverty and poor health.

Take the vow: http://www.plan-uk.org/what-we-do/campaigns/because-i-am-a-girl/vow/

 By taking the vow to end early and forced marriage, you will be helping to mobilise far- reaching political support to eradicate the practice internationally.
