Did you know that when it comes to child-marriage laws, the United States has more in common with Niger and Bolivia than with other Western, industrialized nations?
The Challenge: Create a campaign that can help stop American girls from being forced into marriage.
Here are three ways we took this challenge on.
We created the United States Of Girls peer-to-peer program that lets girls channel the needs of girls at risk or in crisis. #USGirls helps shape the strategy, story and tactics needed to make change.
We formed a strategic partnership between UN Women and GoldieBlox, led by founder and CEO Debbie Sterling, who has made it her mission to empower girls through STEM to take charge of their own futures.
