This image, taken in June 2010 by Stephanie Sinclair for National Geographic magazine, shows child brides posing with their husbands outside the village of Hajjah Hajjah, Yemen. Tahani (in pink) married her husband, Majed, at age six. He was 25.

Hopefully powerful images such as these will help spread awareness of the social injustices (against women in particular ) that are often accepted cultural practices.
