David Cameron Helping Child Marriage End

It was less impacting and involving than the Angelina Jolie-backed Foreign Office initiative to combat sexual violence in conflict, but the British government was also active internationally on child marriage. This includes a “Girl Summit” hosted last summer in London by David Cameron and attended by several world leaders. As David Cameron said at the Girl Summit: “Politicians are very good at passing laws… but aren’t always good at following through and making sure that a change in the law leads to a change in culture and a change in practice.” He’s right. It appears that David Cameron wants to support an end to child marriage. He wants to help find a way to end something that has gone on from the beginning of time which has only left young girls scarred. I think this is great that such a public figure would get involved in this. I would love to see more public figures get involved. What do you think about this?
