  • I am standing here today and declaring that we can end child marriage in a generation. This is the moment where a girl and a girl, and millions of girls worldwide, will be able to say, I will marry when I want.

  • Girls' voices and women's voices are beautiful, they are there, but we can not do this alone. Male advocates, they have to jump in, to step in and work together. It's a collective work. What we need is what girls elsewhere need : good education, and above all, not to marry whilst 11.
