In the Latest Issue of Ms.: Angelina Jolie Fights Child Marriage

16822_10153059242748540_326162240338441246_nWe’re thrilled to announce that the Winter 2015 issue of Ms. is here—and we’ve put human rights activist Angelina Jolie on our cover.

In this issue, we explore Jolie’s fight to end child marriage, and reveal that before age 18, an estimated one-third of girls in developing countries will become brides. These child marriages not only force girls to give up on their dreams and drop out of school, but endanger their very lives when they’re expected to become young mothers.

We also dig into the global efforts to eradicate child marriage and ensure a safe, promising future for girls everywhere.

  1. I strongly support Angelina Jolie and Ms. Blog for boldly addressing this tragic matter of forced child brides, especially in young girls in developing countries. This is a horrible situation that is long overdue to reverse. Also, it is essential to provide girls with strategies and resources for internal healing, recovery, and strengthening. Additionally, it is vital to provide them with resources to become financially independent and secure to lower the potential for engaging in this form of human trafficking due to financial hardship. Thank you Angelina Jolie for all you do for these girls and countless others You are inspiring!

  2. I love the boldness of this article and this perspective. Staying silent can be our biggest enemy. Thank you for bringing light on this issue.

  3. I find it strange if not offensive that Angelina Jolie, a white celebrity is put on the cover next to the words, “The women of #blacklivesmatter”. Did the people at Ms. think it was justified to put Jolie on the cover and not the women of Black Lives Matter by colouring Jolie brownish-beige? I guess this is what happens when consumer culture tries to sell feminism.
