The Alliance is delighted to be hosting an evening networking event for our Queensland members at Clayfield College, Brisbane.
Join us to hear from Dr Jacoba Brasch QC as the discussed the issue of child marriage, its incidence in Australia and why we can all play a role in stamping out this terrible practice.
Did you know?
Around the world, 28 girls every minute are married off too soon, endangering their personal development and wellbeing. You may say, surely not in Australia? Wrong. In Australia, forced marriage happens in all communities and across many different cultures, and in each State and Territory.
However, educators can play a vital role in identifying a girl at risk of being forced into marriage and assist her to seek the support and guidance to avoid the forced end of her youth, and all of the hopes and aspirations she might otherwise have held.
