A new understanding that educating girls' does not constrain their marriage potential is emerging in eastern Sudan. Girls who continue their education and their families are role models who challenge the cultural boundaries of restrictive norms and traditions. This emerging trend can create momentum for other girls to continue their education and delay marriage. This brief examines the growing momentum for change as perceived by respondents in urban and rural communities in Algadaref, Red Sea State and Kassala.
