Guilford College Event Features "Too Young To Wed"

Thursday, April 5, 2012 - 07:30pm EDT (GMT -0400)

Child marriage spans continents, language, religion and caste. Over the next decade, some 100 million girls - or 25,000 girls a day - will be forced to marry before they turn eighteen. Join award-winning journalist Cynthia Gorney and Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer as they discuss in-depth reporting on this harmful practice based on the work by Gorney and photographer Stephanie Sinclair for National Geographic, VII photo agency and the Pulitzer Center.

This event is cosponsored by the Pulitzer Center and Guilford College, a member of the Center's Campus Consortium network.
