Girls’ Education and Delayed Marriage in India – Pooja’s Story [Video]

The Half the Sky Movement cuts across platforms to ignite the change needed to put an end to the oppression of women and girls worldwide.

It brings together video, websites, games, blogs and other educational tools to not only raise awareness of women’s issues, but to also provide concrete steps to fight these problems and empower women.

This video complements the Half the Sky Movement’s mobile game, Family Choices. The video centers on an eighth-grader named Pooja who does not want to get married at age 13 and follow in the footsteps of her mother and other girls in her village. Pooja’s parents and grandparents support her as they believe that delaying marriage and pursuing education is good for Puja and the entire family.
