Child Marriage in Bangladesh: Too Young to Wed | 101 East | बांग्लादेश में बाल विवाह

101 East travels to Bangladesh to find out why young girls are often forced to marry men twice their age.

In Bangladesh, 13-year-old Beezly Roy is preparing for her wedding.
She is to be married the following day.

Despite child marriage being illegal, it is not unusual. Almost a third of all Bangladeshi girls marry before they are 15 years old.

Their futures are not good – they face dangerous childbirth, even death, sexual violence and virtual slavery.

But help is coming from an unexpected source, a young man from a rural community who has made it his life’s goal to end child marriages.

101 East travels to Bangladesh where young girls are being married off too young.
