#BeBoldForChange: Promising practices to tackle early marriage

By Katharine Bryant

The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange. And the need to be bold could not be more timely. Recent research by the World Economic Forum predicts that the economic gender gap won’t close entirely until 2186. Yes, you’ve read that right! That’s over 170 years away or, put another way: a girl child born today could hope to see her great, great, great, great, great-granddaughter achieve gender equality.
