India has the largest number of child brides in the world. Marriages for girls under 18, and sometimes under 15, are arranged by their families for economic and cultural reasons. Many of the artisans were married at a young age, ending their education and often moving them away from their families. These women are now standing up to family and social pressure by insisting that they will keep their daughters in school and out of early marriages.
