The Daily Beast profiles an innovative program in north India that uses cash to encourage families to keep their daughters in school instead of marrying them off at a young age. ICRW is currently evaluating the program, which was launched in 1994. ICRW’s Anju Malhotra is featured in the article, which was reported by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, a New York Times bestselling author, fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and ICRW board member.
