“Brides for Sale” rapper Sonita Alizadeh performed during the 2016 Women in the World Summit Live in New York City. She was only 10 years old when her mother first spoke of selling her as a bride. The anguish and torn loyalties to family are so evident in this performance. Laws that forbid child marriage would free young female children of the torment that Sonita Alizadeh experienced. She is now an advocate for all young girls facing forced marriage.
