Raise marital age for women
The letter is written by Rumana Beebi, a teenager who has just finished 10th grade. She expresses her concern about the minimum age of marriage for girls in India, which is currently set at 18. Rumana argues that 18 is too young for girls to get married as it is a time when they are still in a celebratory and immature phase of their lives. She believes that the minimum age should be raised to 21 to allow girls to understand life better and avoid child marriages.
