Law Reform Imperative To End Child Marriage

The Minister for Women, Family and Community Development, Datuk Seri Rina Harun recently said the government did not intend to legislate against child marriage, opting for other measures to curb the practice. We speak to women's rights activist and lawyer Meera Samanther on why legislative reform is necessary alongside poverty reduction efforts to protect children, especially girls.
