Too Young to Wed: The Secret World of Child Brides
Every year, throughout the world, millions of young girls are forced into marriage. Child marriage is outlawed in many countries and international agreements forbid the practice yet this tradition still spans continents, language, religion and caste.
Over an eight-year period, photographer Stephanie Sinclair has investigated the phenomenon of child marriage in India, Yemen, Afghanistan, Nepal and Ethiopia. Her multimedia presentation, produced in association with National Geographic, synthesizes this body of work into a call to action.
Stephanie Sinclair's images are featured in a story on child marriage in the June 2011 issue of National Geographic magazine.
How to help: National Geographic has compiled a list of organizations that encourage families to delay marriage and give girls an opportunity to reach their full potential.
In a related post Stephanie Sinclair shares the difficult experiences child brides face. She discusses the need for their voices to be heard and the challenges she faced as a journalist who witnessed their struggles and abuse.

In one of our previous videos on the five biggest anonymous leaks, we covered some of the most shocking revelations ever caused by this shadowy group of nameless hackers.
In response to the Charlie Hebdo shootings in January 2015, Anonymous declared war on al-Qaeda, the Islamic State and indeed all terrorists who would seek to reduce people's freedoms using brutal violence.
In a move that proved Anonymous has no time for bigotry from either side of the argument, in 2015 the website of Trump Towers was brought down for over an hour after some of its members took issue with the Donald's remarks on the campaign trail. Not everything Anonymous does is related to politics, because sometimes even all-powerful hackers need a little R and R. Now first off we must state that this is not a confirmed Anonymous hack, but it deserves to be on this list just for mentioning our dear lord and saviour Harambe.
Throughout 2009 it seemed that the loose collaboration known as Anonymous may have been about to collapse, as infighting over morals and a lack of worthy targets caused active numbers to drop. In November 2010 Wikileaks started releasing hundreds of thousands of leaked US diplomatic cables, which consisted of messages and information sent between the US State Department and its worldwide network of 274 consulates and embassies between 1966 and 2010.
The Arab Spring was a revolutionary movement of protest against the Governments of African and Asian countries such as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Jordan, Morocco and Yemen but to name a few.

The criminals know Psychology 101. One of the best way to trap a wild animal is the same for trapping people -- enticement! Set the trap with a juicy "reward" and then sit back and let nature run its course. In the case of humans that enticement - money - targets a basic passion : need and greed. The criminals will allow Bitcoin to go to 2,000 then 5,000 then 10,000 and who knows how high after that. The goal is simple - get the clueless people to accept digital money over hard money and then, when the prey is in the trap, slam the door shut! Since the 1990's I've been voicing that the day the criminals get the world to wholly accept a cashless system - be it Bitcoin or any other - that day will be THE END of the world as we've known it. The loudest "I TOLD YOU SO" awaits many clueless folk. Final comment : offer me a free 1-ounce gold coin ($1,260) and I'll run to get it; offer me a free Bitcoin ($1,480) and I'll politely pass."
Challenge the message and not the messenger! The first person to resort to name calling and personal attacks automatically loses the debate! Personal attack is often the best indication that the writer knows his logic is flawed and therefore tries to deflect attention by attacking the opponent, instead of attacking the arguments of the opponent.
