GRAN News - CHILD MARRIAGE IS CHILD LABOUR


GRAN agrees with AIDS-Free World when it says, "Child marriage is not merely a harmful traditional practice: it is a crime, it is child labour in its worst form, and it is a complete violation of a girl’s human rights."  AIDS-Free World is pushing the International Labour Organization (ILO) to classify girls who are forced into marriages as child labourers.  http://childmarriageischildlabour.com/problem/
