    Demonstrators hold a 'NO' banner amid tear gas in front of the Greek parliament on June 29, 2011. Demostrators gather in central Athenst several hours before the Greek Parliament was to vote on an austerity package.

    Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // Ritu Saini (foreground), 21, and Rupa, 23, enjoy the monsoon rains atop a roof in Agra, India, in 2016. Both women are survivors of acid attacks and now work at Sheroes Hangout, a cafe where they educate visitors about the hundreds of women and girls who are injured each year by acid in India. Formerly a volleyball player, Ritu was attacked by her cousin. After several reconstructive surgeries, she lost her left eye. Rupa was attacked when she was 15. The group @stopacidattacks advocates for policies to help acid-attack survivors. . This is my last post in this takeover of the @theIWMF Instagram feed. I shared the images that were the basis of my recent Anja Niedringhaus Courage In Photojournalism Award. Anja, a Pulitzer Prize-winning AP photographer who tragically lost her life in 2014 in Afghanistan, dedicated her life to documenting conflict and its impact on the people of war-torn regions. It has been a great honor to receive this award from the IWMF and have my work featured as part of her legacy. #photojournalism #iwmfcourage #india #anjascourage #girls #letgirlslearn #tooyoungtowed

    Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // Portrait of sisters Yagana, 21, Yakaka 19, and Falimata, 14, in Maiduguri, Nigeria, in 2016. The girls were abducted and held captive for years by Boko Haram militants until each found moments to escape. The terrorist group drew global outrage after abducting more than 270 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok, forcing many into marriage and motherhood. In armed conflicts, child marriage is increasingly used as a weapon of war, forcing girls to give birth give birth to the next germination of fighters. Thousands of girls remain missing in Nigeria with little help of rescue. Those who manage to escape struggle with little support to rebuild their lives. .

    Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // "Whenever I saw him, I hid. I hated to see him," Tahini (in pink) recalls of the early days of her marriage to Majed, when she was 6 and he was 25. The young wife posed for this portrait with former classmate Ghana, also a child bride, outside their mountain home in Hajjah, Yemen, in 2010. Child marriage has long been a scourge in Yemen, one of the few countries in the region without a legal minimum age of marriage. Attempts to set 18 as the minimum marrying age collapsed with the outbreak of the Yemeni Civil War which began in 2015. The UNFPA-INTERSOS assessment interviewed over 250 community members, local leaders and survivors of child marriage for insight into how families are coping with the conflict. Most participants "were of the opinion that child marriage has increased in their community. They all stated that the conflict pushed the practice," according to the assessment’s findings. .
