Event Description

Each day, more than 41,000 girls worldwide are married while still children. In the decades of research we have conducted on this practice, we have found that child brides are at greater risk of experiencing a range of poor health outcomes, having children at younger ages, dropping out of school, earning less over their lifetimes and living in poverty than their peers who marry at later ages. They are also more likely to experience intimate partner violence, have restricted physical mobility and have limited decision-making ability. And from our research with the World Bank, we found that it’s also costing the global economy trillions of dollars.

These dynamics affect not only the girls themselves, but their children, households, communities and societies, limiting their ability to reach their full social and economic potential.


On September 5th, we will release our final round of publications from this effort – a series of thematic briefs that explore in depth targeted issues that child brides face, from mental health to reproductive coercion to food security.
 Join us to learn more about our recent work and talk
about what's next in our efforts to end child marriage.

Date: Wednesday, September 5th
Time: 5:00 - 7:00pm 
Where: ICRW, 1120 20th St NW, Suite 500N,
Washington, DC 20036
