Every 7 seconds a girl under 15 is married. Early marriage means girls are forced to leave school. When girls leave school they are often forced to find informal work, which means they are more vulnerable to exploitation. And thus starts a vicious cycle that not only affects their lives, but the lives of their children. Save the Children is working with inspiring #GirlChampions around the world to break this cycle, campaign for change in perceptions and fight for girls' rights. This International Women's Day, meet our six exceptional Girl Champions, who are working every day in their countries to ensure that all girls have the right to choose their own future. With empowerment and the right support, girls can change the world. SHARE the stories of these passionate girl champions and spread the word >> http://ow.ly/hDRU309lDG6 #WomensDay #IWD2017 #BeBoldforChange
