    We need to protect girls from being married before they are emotionally and physically ready and be free to choose their own path in life. To chase their own dreams and ambitions. To be a person not to be a baby machine and servant to a man old enough often to be their father or grandfather.
    Women should have equal opportunities and rights whatever part of the world they live, whatever their colour.

      Thanks so much, Margaret for your comment. I completely agree. Women do deserve so much more, and most definitely the right to choose who, when and if they want to get married. It is so important to give girls the chance to have education first, then marriage only when she’s ready.
