When her sister reached puberty, she was sent to a traditional â€œinitiation campâ€ that teaches girls â€œhow to sexually please a man.â€ She got pregnant there â€” at age 11. Banda, however, refused to go. Instead, she organized others and asked her communityâ€™s leader to issue a bylaw that no girl should be forced to marry before turning 18. She pushed on to the national level â€¦ with incredible results for girls across Malawi.
