Age of Marriage vs. Age of Sexual Consent Brief

Organización: Girls Not Brides Año: 2019

While there is increasing consensus globally that girls should not be forced into marriage as children, there is far less agreement about when young people should be allowed to have sex and at what age they are able to make an informed choice about whether to engage in a consensual sexual relationship.

This brief was developed by the Girls Not Brides secretariat, and does not necessarily reflect the views of every member of the Girls Not Brides Partnership.
