Gender norms and child marriage - Girls Not Brides Global Meeting
Girls Not Brides
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
ALIGN attended the largest ever meeting of advocates committed to ending child marriage in June 2018. The Girls Not Brides' 2nd Global Meeting in Malaysia provided an opportunity to engage with organisations working to end child marriage with a focus on gender norm change.
ALIGN team member Rachel Marcus presented at two panels on social norms, girls' clubs, gender and norm change. The ALIGN team also enjoyed connecting with a range of stakeholders working to address harmful gender norms to prevent child marriage, and we aim to profile many of these initiatives on the platform in the coming months.
