The book is about the ancient practice of child arranged marriages still going on in many parts of the world. Every year, throughout the world, millions of young girls are forced into marriage. Child marriage is outlawed in many countries and international agreements forbid the practice yet this tradition still spans continents, language, religion and caste.
Over an eight-year period, photographer Stephanie Sinclair has investigated the phenomenon of child marriage in India, Yemen, Afghanistan, Nepal and Ethiopia. Her multimedia presentation, produced in association with National Geographic, synthesizes this body of work into a call to action.

via What did Medieval People Really Wear?
This reblog showed the Early to Mid-Middle Ages vastly different we are conditioned to believe it was. For example, nudity was quite common during the Early to Mid-Middle Ages. Public bathhouses were also very common Middle Ages. I must say that it was the Inquisition which begin to outlaw many of these practices before the start of Protestant Reformation. Let’s just say if you were of nobility the Inquisition allowed you more leeway than if you were of peasantry.
Yes, the Protestant Reformation did bring about stricter conduct codes for every one not just the serf. It did away with what was labeled frivolous, empty romantic writings. Arguing it doesn’t exist and led to the idea of Don Quixote? Where the plot revolves around the adventures of a nobleman from La Mancha named Alonso Quixano, who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his mind and decides to become a knight-errant (caballero andante) to revive chivalry and serve his nation, under the name Don Quixote de la Mancha.
