Lent 16: Marriage, brides at risk

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

Every year up to 25,000 brides are deliberately set on fire in India and Bangladesh. In the capital city of Delhi alone, a woman is burned to death every 12 hours. Most of their murders go unpunished.

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.

  2. This is so horrifying. Not that I was unaware, but to stop and think about it, it is absolutely horrific – no other word.

  3. These posts are heartbreaking, Hannah.

  4. This is absolutely terrible. As horrific as these quotes have been, it’s actually turning me toward reading the book.

What do you think? I'd love to know.
