The Too Young to Wed campaign has done a great job of bringing attention to the story of child marriage. The challenge was to make an original video that celebrated the work these two women have done, but also emphasized the important changes this campaign has championed in the fight against child marriage.
We incorporated several different speeches by world leaders such as Hillary Clinton as well as news anchors like Christiane Amanpour.
In the past two years, incredible steps were taken to prevent child marriage, and Too Young to Wed has been at the center of that campaign. In some cases, the girls themselves are starting to fight for their right to an education and an innocent childhood. In order to tell the complete story, we felt that we must include these milestones, whether they were at the grassroots level or an international one.
