BRAHMA KUMARIS WORLD SPIRITUAL UNIVERSITY

POSITION ON CHILD MARRIAGE

May 2016

As the world’s largest spiritual organization led by women, the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU) is especially committed to the realization of the potential of girls and women. We understand that it is not only the right of girls and women to be educated and to express their talents and potential to the fullest extent, but it is also in the best interest of our world to experience the unrestricted gifts of women and girls. Child marriage limits their education, inhibits their health and compromises the full potential of girls to contribute to the world at a time when we most need their contribution. The BKWSU unequivocally supports gender equality and opposes the practice of child marriage.
