Will child marriage ever end in Bangladesh?
Transcript of Will child marriage ever end in Bangladesh?
Legal age for marriage is 18. Why Does This Happen? Issue Child marriage destroys both the physical and emotional childhood of girls and when they are further deprived of an education they no longer have the potential to provide the greatest contribution possible for the development of the country.
Since girls have freedoms and rights expressed through laws and conventions, Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina needs to put an end to the unlawful practice of child marriage occurring in the country and bring these girls to justice. - National Child Marriage Restraint Act of 1929
- Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women - Gender Inequality
- Traditional Practices and Customs
- Governments Failure to Enforce Laws What Are the Consequences? - Violence, abuse and forced sexual relations
- Poor sexual and reproductive health
- Illiteracy and lack of education "It is the new kind of slavery.
Here girls are a burden, they don't earn income in this culture, Which means they are totally dependent on their families to support
and protect them and pay their dowries.
Dowry for a very poor family is work of a lifetime, they'd rather start early because the dowry is not too high. The girl is more easy to sell when she is young.”
