Child marriage has always been a huge issue. despite public outcries every time the issue surfaces, nothing has been done to protect the right of the child. the body shop malaysia together with wao, sis, and awl recently organised a "walk the talk" to end child marriage, to mark the launch of the group's petition campaign to urge the government to raise the minimum age of marriage to 18 years, with no exceptions, regardless, of gender, faith, and ethnicity.
the group also calls upon the government to ensure that marriage is not used as an instrument to legitimize and justify s****l crimes against children.
the petition, which started on 1 august 2018 has already collected 20,000 signatures and will go on until 30 september 2018 before petitions are handed over to the minister of women and family development, minister of religion and minister of law. to sign the petition go to https://www.thebodyshop.com.my/end-child-marriage-petition.
Regrann from @amber_glow - rain or shine. i will go all out, in any weather condition/ air condition to protest against child marriage. sleepless nights thinking about my malaysian girls. awesome turnout. i’ll be visiting you to get signatures for our petition soon!
