Honduras Passes Bill Making Child Marriage Illegal; Other Countries Should Follow, HRW Researcher Writes

Human Rights Watch: Time to Get Serious about Child Marriage in Latin America
Heather Barr, senior researcher at the Women’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, discusses the passage of a bill making child marriage illegal in Honduras, writing, “For the many other countries in Latin America that need urgently to end child marriage, it is time to follow Honduras’ lead. Honduras has joined the growing, global movement to relegate the harmful practice of child marriage to the past. Let’s hope other countries across Latin America will follow suit” (7/13).
