CNN celebrates the power of girls in ‘Girl Rising’
Amina from Afghanistan
“Look into my eyes. Do you see it now? I am change."
Amina is constrained by Afghan society, confined by her gender and expected only to serve men. She was married at 12-years-old and forced to bear a child when she was still a child herself – while her own brother was given her dowry money to buy a used car. But this child bride has had enough. She is determined to reject the limitations prescribed by society and to lead others to do the same.
