Enforcing Laws against Child Marraige in Malawi

This petition had 1,179 supporters

In Malawi, there is a law against child marriage stating that girls should not be married until the age of 18. However, this law is not strictly enforced resulting in many girls getting married between the ages 15-18. One in every Two girls in Malawi are married before the age of 18 years old, most without their consent. We are outraged! Sign this petition to alert our government about this major problem and in hope for the girls of Malawi to have the right to choose and pursue a career.
