Child marriage a human rights violation, advocates say | Toronto Star

The issue of child marriage is part of a new Amnesty International campaign, launched ahead of International Women’s Day
on Saturday. In it, the human rights group calls on governments to
secure sexual and reproductive rights, saying the health and safety of
women and girls is under threat.
“It is unbelievable
that in the 21st century some countries are condoning child marriage and
marital rape while others are outlawing abortion, sex outside marriage
and same-sex sexual activity,” Salil Shetty, the group’s secretary
general, said in a statement.
