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.
