End Child Marriage Petition

Dear Prime Minister,

Child marriage is a human rights violation that robs girls of their rights to health, to live in security, and to choose if, when and whom to marry.

I call on the Australian Government to:

  • Work with the international community to take all possible steps to end the practice of child marriage within a generation, by 2030
  • Use its position on the international stage to encourage global policy responses that recognise:
    • the relationship between marriage and other rights,
    • the need to address harmful traditional practices in communities, and the increased threat of early marriage in humanitarian and fragile contexts.
