Ending child marriage in Egypt

In this edition, we head to Egypt where a campaign is underway to convince families on the negative impact of child marriage, but many still don't want to hear the message.

Plus, how here in France we may now have a record number of women in parliament but they are still struggling to get their voices heard.
