Our Girl is a short animated film highlighting the devastating impact that forced marriage causes. The film aims to get communities talking and acting towards ending forced marriage in the UK.

Our Girl is a national prevention and awareness campaign that is disseminated by specialist organisations in their work with communities, young people and professionals, as well as raising awareness that forcing someone to marry against their will is a breach of basic human rights.
