This month, Plan Norge, the Norwegian arm of Plan, staged an amazing campaign to raise awareness against child weddings around the world. In their own words: “On the occasion of the UN’s International Day of the Girl Child, Plan Norway invited all to Norway’s first official child wedding, and no one went home unmoved. Several hundred people gathered to demonstrate against child marriage outside the church, and around 400 people were in the audience inside. Everyone present shouted a resounding “Stop the wedding!” when the minister, Rolf Berg, asked Thea whether she took Geir to be her husband. Simultaneously, #stoppbryllupet – #StopTheWedding – spread like wildfire across social media and the protest reached out to more 3.5 million people via the Facebook and Twitter messages of almost 8000 people.”
