She began her independent journey to educate herself and her kids and heal from the wounds bound tight within her heart. She remained chained to her Muslim Faith and her culture and fought endless battles to fight her way out of the suppression placed on her because she was born female.
This is a story that has not been easy for Ms. Hassan to tell, but it's a very important one because the same abuses are happening even today in many parts of the Middle East. The practice of marrying off young children - little girls - to much older men is still common.
Ms. Hassan is very brave to come forth and share her story, her experiences, borne out of her own suffering, in the hopes that international attention and relief can be brought to those innocent women and children who are caught up in the tribulations of war as well as bringing attention to the plight of the children who are being sold and victimized as child brides.
