Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @TooYoungToWed // Niamat weeps over the grave of his daughter Khalida, who set herself on fire after enduring years of abuse from her husband and in-laws. Her younger sister, Khadija, 8 (right), was her main caregiver while she lay dying with burns. The family lives in a small village outside of Jalalabad, Afghanistan. I first encountered the issue of child marriage while working as a news photographer in Afghanistan, where I met several girls in a Herat burn ward. More than 1/2 of the girls who attempted suicide by self-immolation were married as children. Poverty, strong patriarchal values and poor access to education are behind Afghanistan’s high child marriage rates. This April, Afghanistan's Ministry of Women’s Affairs and the Ministry of Information and Culture launched a “National Action Plan To Eliminate Early and Child Marriage” to better address the issue. This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Puteaux, Paris. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo. The show, which opened June 1 and runs through this Sunday, Sept. 24, is complete with educational information about the dangers of #childmarriage and the efforts underway around the world to end the practice – including our work at our nonprofit organization of the same name, @TooYoungToWed.
