Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // Ritu Saini (foreground), 21, and Rupa, 23, enjoy the monsoon rains atop a roof in Agra, India, in 2016. Both women are survivors of acid attacks and now work at Sheroes Hangout, a cafe where they educate visitors about the hundreds of women and girls who are injured each year by acid in India. Formerly a volleyball player, Ritu was attacked by her cousin. After several reconstructive surgeries, she lost her left eye. Rupa was attacked when she was 15. The group @stopacidattacks advocates for policies to help acid-attack survivors. . This is my last post in this takeover of the @theIWMF Instagram feed.

Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // Portrait of sisters Yagana, 21, Yakaka 19, and Falimata, 14, in Maiduguri, Nigeria, in 2016. The girls were abducted and held captive for years by Boko Haram militants until each found moments to escape. The terrorist group drew global outrage after abducting more than 270 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok, forcing many into marriage and motherhood. In armed conflicts, child marriage is increasingly used as a weapon of war, forcing girls to give birth give birth to the next germination of fighters. Thousands of girls remain missing in Nigeria with little help of rescue. Those who manage to escape struggle with little support to rebuild their lives. .

Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // "Whenever I saw him, I hid. I hated to see him," Tahini (in pink) recalls of the early days of her marriage to Majed, when she was 6 and he was 25. The young wife posed for this portrait with former classmate Ghana, also a child bride, outside their mountain home in Hajjah, Yemen, in 2010. Child marriage has long been a scourge in Yemen, one of the few countries in the region without a legal minimum age of marriage. Attempts to set 18 as the minimum marrying age collapsed with the outbreak of the Yemeni Civil War which began in 2015. The UNFPA-INTERSOS assessment interviewed over 250 community members, local leaders and survivors of child marriage for insight into how families are coping with the conflict. Most participants "were of the opinion that child marriage has increased in their community. They all stated that the conflict pushed the practice," according to the assessment’s findings. .

Tariq, left, Nisreen, and their five-year old daughter Roslyn, Kurdish refugees from Syria, are seen on the day-long bus ride from the Athens port to the Greek-Macedonian border in the far north, as they continue their journey from Syria to Germany. The journey from Syria to Germany, where eventually they arrived safely and applied for asylum, took many months. They had arrived in Greece a few days previous to this photo being taken, after crossing on a small dingy from Turkey with dozens of other asylum seekers. #conflict #refugees #syria #migration #war #greece -----------------------------------------------------This is @nicoletung signing off from this week's Instagram takeover. Thank you for following along, and a shout out of gratitude again to @theiwmf for their unwavering support of women journalists around the world. Their mission to empower us and provide journalists with the means and training to focus on under-covered issues, I believe, has the effect of empowering others, including those who give us the privilege of telling their stories.
A mountain of discarded lifejackets used by refugees and migrants crossing the Aegean Sea are seen at a dump on Lesbos, Greece. #conflict #refugees #syria #migration #war #greece -----------------------------------------------------This is @nicoletung and today I'm posting a few images from documenting the mass migration of people across the sea from Turkey to Greece.
A father comforts his crying son shortly after arriving on the shores of Lesbos, Greece, on November 17, 2015. The roughly 1.5 hour boat ride between Turkey's western coastline and the closest Greek island has cost anywhere between $900-3000 per person. With winter approaching, the weather also becomes more unpredictable, causing further confusion and fear for refugees fleeing conflict. #conflict #refugees #syria #migration #war #greece -----------------------------------------------------This is @nicoletung and today I'm posting a few images from documenting the mass migration of people across the sea from Turkey to Greece.
