Summary
Nepal has the third highest rate of child marriage in Asia, with 37 percent of girls marrying before age 18, and 10 percent marrying before the age of 15, despite the fact that the minimum age of marriage is 20 under Nepal law. This report is based on 149 interviews conducted across Nepal, most with married girls and young women who married as girls. It describes the devastating effects of child marriage, including denial of access to education, serious health consequences of early pregnancy, and domestic abuse. A complex web of factors drives these child marriages, including poverty, lack of access to education, child labor, social pressures, and harmful practices. Cutting across all of these is entrenched gender inequality, and damaging social norms that make girls less valued than boys in Nepali society. In July 2014, Nepal's government pledged to end child marriage by 2020. By 2016, this goal has shifted to ending child marriage by 2030. But the government has yet to take the concrete steps needed to achieve either goal. The report calls on Nepal to release a comprehensive plan to comabt child marriage, and seeks to support that process with recommendations drawn directly from the experiences of the married children who continue to be deeply harmed by this practice
