In Burkina Faso very young girls are forced to marry much older men. After the marriage they are used as slaves and their lives stop, literally and figuratively. Most of these young girls are raped after which they die due to complications during their pregnancy.
Amnesty wanted to put pressure on the Burkina Faso government, through a petition, to stop these medieval practices. This resulted in a compelling visual that shows the birth of a young girl in Burkina Faso, already wearing her wedding veil. The visual appeared as a print and on social media.
