Stop Early Marriage III
The triangular black and white background represents the headboard of a hospital bed in the recovery ward of the Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia. The diagonal black line in the background is a stop sign, as if to say ‘Stop !’ to the practice of early marriage. The black and white colours show the gravity of the problem. The girl’s elongated neck symbolizes beauty and endurance while her face betrays a slight sad smile and hauting eyes.
