Early customary marriages: A violation of a girl child rights
MetadataShow full item record
The undertaking is meant to dramatise the violations of a girl child rights that occur as a result of early customary marriages. This study has been informed out of the realization that men and women must treat each other as equal partners in the process of development. This awakening and recognition that every right is ranked part pasu in importance and contingent on the realization of others, creates a necessary and positive climate for the stimulation of action. It is hoped that the awareness raised in this study about the damaging effects of early marriages will not merely be academic but one that sets in motion a long match to the full realization of individual equality and autonomy by putting in place remedial measures that will quell this practice in our society.
