13 year old Barira (not her real name), hides her face in her hands. In a country where over 3/4 of all women are married before they are 18, she recently narrowly escaped being forced into marriage. Niger has the highest rate of childhood marriage in the world with most marriages of underage girls being arranged by their parents in return for a dowry payment.
