Any westerner who comes and discovers such problems in Nepal,would be great if they make effort to support the people get proper education and prevent sucj horrible things never happen again. Not only to tell the world that Nepal is bad in these things but also helping to stop it will be the best.

I have actually attended those hijab meetings on the university campus.The Arab girls that run it are all rich. Yes, they wear hijibs but also make up, nail polish, jewelry, and just love tight yoga pants and those American cowboy denim jackets.They drive cars. They are adamant in saying not to feel sorry for Muslim women....that they all "choose" to wear the hijib and are empowered. Of all the sects in Islam the American Arab is the most powerful, wealthiest and educated. They were pushing Arab hijabs as something very good. Some of the women in the audience brought up women like these featured in this video. They said that either this treatment of women doesn't exist or is rare. Rich Arab girls are so ignorant. They are in the minority in the world's Muslims. But they are the majority and most vocal in America. Americans think this is what Muslim women are. When I challenged them I was asked to leave by the female American professor who accused me of being Islamophobic.

so basically parents forcing their daughters to get married as soon as possible why one of the reasons are poverty if they marry their daughter off there will be one less mouth to be fed I don't understand why people give birth to children knowing very well that they won't be able to give them a better life why get married at all

There needs to be an outlet for children that don't want to marry. I understand that in India, the caste system is very strict and whole villages can be destroyed based off of one person's actions- or by a "couples" actions. This woman is right- the families are joining one another- it isn't two people in love. So so sad. It's sad that families are happy to marry off their young BABIES none the less, to ensure a decent life- if you can call it that. Authorities should be able to remove children from these illegal situations but sadly- most of them are corrupt too.

I thought we were supposed to think all cultures are equal. It is very unprogressive to cast aspersions on this creepy marriage stuff or Chinese eating dogs and cats. You, people, need some cultural sensitivity training!

This video only proves that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the Greatest COUNTRY on earth, because of our values and our culture. Sadly, the countries depicted in this video only shows how horrible and backwards those cultures are.

Its not a tradition in india. Even arranged marriage are happening with consent of both partners. Yes, it is still happening in some underdeveloped parts and that's too under pressure from elders and relatives. We love our sisters and daughter. But elders see daughters as burden on them or trade them in exchange for a girl for their son. It is very embarrassing for me as an Indian. Education to girls is only solution to the problem which India has done successfully to larger extent.

Breeding pedophilia! Why isn't this a crime?
Anmol Adhikari (7 months ago)
In Nepal , The situations have improved a lot over the past couple of years . Child marriage has almost been eradicated . However , the age of marriage is just between 17-21 which is surprising. Poverty and lack of proper education leads to early marriage . The situations have been quite improved however a lot has to be done . The INGOs and NGOs are just engulfing money and working too lrss than their potential . It is quite important to raise awareness all around . I hope i can do some good too with correct direction. I wanna help yet am helpless .

A lot of documentaries about early marriage due to arrange marriage but what has been done by the people who documented; have they done something for this children; the first speaker was even asked to help them but she cant; what i only see in this documentary for now is exploiting this kids by showing there faces...i wish someone will stand up for them.
Beejin marfoy (6 months ago)
Minie P if someone tries to stop it; they disgrace the family and can possibly go to jail. If a journalist had the ability to help, I’m sure most would.

If these 'educated' women were to read the Quran, it tells it's followers that their prophet married a girl of six, Aisha, and consummated at 5. So it's ALWAYS going to be accepted in Muslim countries. Disgusting and sad, and very true. And these people live in the western world too. Oh yes they do. Long gone are the days when people with degrees could find small pockets of illegal gatherings. Not only do the natives condone it, even the police disagree with the laws.

It is now old, but this is a wonderful video. I learned a lot from it which adds to my knowledge of this horrendous practice. Bless the little girl who said she would bust their heads with a rock! That is exactly what it will take to stop these ignorant, and yet evil, people from this practice. I don't think we should try to deny that men are behind this practice and women go along with it because they are helpless and have no choice If these societies are ever to improve, the women must rise and bust some heads! Men will never change the customs because they created them.

Governments should help... There are God-given rights & guidelines. In the Baha'i Faith, bride and groom make mate choices without any interference, then consent of parents is required. The age of maturity is 15; marriage is not permissible before.

This might still be prevalent in some remote rural areas but it is drastically decreasing each year in India. With education spreading in all around believe me this trend will vanish. There's also, 'Save the girl child' by the govt. of India. I've never heard one case of child marriage in the North East part of India, yet what can I say when they've already said it's prevalent all over India?:) Frankly I'm more worried about the new trend of the West where these days kids as young as 11 to 16 are losing their virginity. There's a documentary on that but the name escapes me now. P. S. I respect what they're doing.

Child marriage is social evil & government is doing decent job to prevent it. Among some backward communities in Rajasthan child marriage takes place but that is not for money, it is just a cultural thing in those communities. Young girls are married in their age group and girl stays with her family post marriage ( She is not raped & marriage is consummated only after she attains puberty) Girl education is free & many state government are providing bicycles & moped to girls for commutation. Girls drop out from school for lack of seprate toilets & government is addressing that issue as well. Things are changing for better. Cheers.

In the US, the horror of marriage is being the male. Courts are totally against males not to mention society. "Marriage" in the US is female dominated. They define what men should think about it, how they should express their feelings, how males should react to female mood swings, what males should think about other attractive women, how men should shower, shave, eat, sleep, poop, pee, breathe, etc.... It's a female dictatorship that must be abolished. I will vote for the first presidential candidate that outlaws marriage in the US.
