8 Years Old and Married - The Secret World of Child Brides

The secret world of child brides, happens in many countries and cultures.
It's terrible and the true, this is outright criminal and barbaric but still happening in this day and age.

An eight year old is raped in 'marriage', a 14 year old is pregnant and scared she will die at birth...

Watch the short video for an insight.
(Please do not watch this with young children nearby, there is nothing graphic but sex is mentioned and the video is not appropriate for young ears.)

Stephanie Sinclair's investigation compiled over 8 yrs for the National Geographic.

National Geographic has compiled a list of organizations that encourage families to delay marriage and give girls an opportunity to reach their full potential.
