Dear Ms. Mohammed,

Thank you for your question.

I recommend that you use this LibGuide on Human Rights: http://libguides.oldwestbury.edu/content.php?pid=326366&sid=2670470 . This guide was created by Prof. Joanne Spodaro (phone number: 516-876-2896) for the Area Studies courses at SUNY Old Westbury, so this guide is geared to meet your needs.  I cannot emphasize enough its value to your task.  I have included a graphic below that shows the tabs that organize the information on this guide. It contains many resources such as print book information, links to ebooks, country information, web sites, specialized search engines, videos, news sources, and more, many of which address your topic of human rights violations of young girls through underage marriage.  It also contains a list of databases that will have materials on this topic as well.  In these databases you will find peer-reviewed articles, government documents, and primary research on your topic.  I recommend you use the keywords marriage and children and human rights

If after viewing this LibGuide you still want to explore the library resources on your own, go the the library home page at: http://libguides.oldwestbury.edu/libraryhome . I have included a graphic of the library home page below with the important links highlighted.  However, I would use the Human Rights LibGuide linked above as the jumping-off point for your research.
