Continuing our comic series on early marriage, this month we learn about Aisha’s story through the incredible artwork and storytelling of Félix Brassier.
Aisha finds herself in Lebanon after fleeing the war in Syria and without any school to go to. Her family decides the best future for her is to be a wife, but Aisha is unhappy in this role, and instead fights for her ability to get an education.

Since the beginning of 2018, we have been bringing you our stories we hear from the ground about the practice of child marriage. This started when our chairperson visited Lebanon last September and was served a cup of tea by a child bride.
Since then, SB OverSeas has been determined to raise awareness on the subject. Click here to read the first comic in the series and also see our child marriage stories, publications and read about our panel events.
