Child Marriage in the Wake of Conflicts and Emergencies

Church of Sweden is a Swedish NGO working to address the needs of women and girls worldwide. Unfortunately, one in three girls drop out of secondary school due to child marriage globally, and it’s one of many factors reinforcing inequality between girls and boys. The Church of Sweden wanted to illustrate the many ways child marriage impacts girls, and show how especially risky conflicts and emergency situations can be. When families are in crisis, they’re more likely to marry their children too soon – often because they think the girls are better off in a marriage. As the graphic shows, that simply isn’t true.
