14 million girls under 18 will be married this year; 38 thousand today and 13 girls in the last 30 seconds, according to the UN Population Fund. Girls deserve better. Girls deserve education, to dream big and make those dreams a reality. Girls deserve to make their own decisions about their growing bodies; about when and whom they will marry, if at all. We're committed to a world with zero violence against girls and women. What are you doing to ensure girls have the future they deserve?
