“Promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women” is the third goal of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (Harber, 2014). The International Plan (2018) advocates that formal, safe and high-quality education as well as lifelong learning opportunities are the rights of every child. However, there are still many girls in the world who can not receive education. According to the International Plan (2015) and the Malala Found (2018), by the end of 2015, 130 million girls around the world did not receive education; girls were 1.5 times more likely to be excluded from basic education than boys. Therefore, this paper takes the education of Indian girls as an example, analyzes the influence of early marriage on Indian girls' education from the perspective of human rights, and finally concludes that early marriage may not be the main reason for Indian girls' missing education, and that it does not only bring negative impacts on Indian girls.
