Turns out male leaders are happy to support women's rights if they have the right legal information

We recently trained leaders from 6 villages over a period of 6 weeks about women's rights. One leader remarked, I always felt uncomfortable about child marriage but didn't have the evidence or legal information to backup my feelings, so in the face of family and clan pressure, I didn't know what to say.

What a joy it was for 25 leaders to receive our Women's Rights training manual in Swahili, so they now have a reference point for decision making and can support women's rights.
