But in other parts, a girl who goes through puberty is suddenly seen as a commodity that may be bought, sold or traded. “Impeding a girl’s safe, healthy path through adolescence to a productive and autonomous adulthood is a violation of her rights,” UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin says. more
