Mexico: Why Child Marriage Persists In Mexico (Includes audio)
National Public Radio – November 23, 2017
Child marriage was banned in Mexico in 2014, and while rates of child marriage around the world have fallen in recent decades, the numbers in Mexico haven’t moved much. According to the U.N. Women data, 25 percent of Mexican women ages 50 to 54 say they married as children, while 21 percent of women 20 to 24 report the same – a small change over more than a generation.
