A crash course in changing the world.
I found it very interesting that one of the hot topics on the Women Watch page was the issue of early marriage and women speaking out against being forced to marry early. In many cultures, I know that it is very common for marriages to be arranged by parents and family members without any input from the people being married. It is a shame that women in some parts of the world are viewed as so dependent and insignificant that they cannot even choose for themselves who they want to spend the entirety of their life with. I feel very lucky to have the freedom to date and marry whomever I choose and am grateful for my parents and culture.
