Worth of a Girl
Hope and survival of child brides
“Worth of A Girl” takes a look at child marriage around the globe, and explores how being a child bride affects girls economically, educationally and emotionally. In a yearlong project, Voice of America interviewed child brides from South and East Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas, including the United States. Their moving stories, told through their own experiences, vividly highlight life with the families they leave and the ones they join.
