The first time 19-year-old Sonita Alizadeh’s parents tried to sell her into marriage, she was 10 years old. “I wasn’t sad because I didn’t know what they were talking about,” Sonita remembered

“My mother was 13 when she was married,” said Sonita. “Everyone had told her that she was a woman and had no value… My music was a nightmare for her. Now, she is one of my biggest fans.”
