How the public reacted to our child marriage stunt

Earlier this week, we partnered with dating app Happn to shine the light on the 41,000 girls around the world who are forced into marriage every day.

For one day, we took-over the dating app with a stunt profile. Instead of seeing lots of other single people to engage with, over 40,000 users in London were presented with just one profile. We eliminated daters dating choice to highlight the reality that thousands of girls, often as young as 14, face every day.

Hundreds of users took to social media in response to our stunt. Here we take a look at how the public reacted.
