Growing Up Married is a documentary which focuses on the stories of child brides recollecting their memories as adults. It explores what happens after child marriage by focusing on the stories of four women, and making their experiences visible, while contributing to debates around this significant, complex and emotionally charged human rights issue which has often been discursively silenced.

I started a weight loss routine last week. It has been 9 days, and I can see the results in the form of some kind of weight loss. I hope I am able to keep up with the routine for a long time.

There are some males and some females authors who are interesting to write books. Also by writers want to write interesting stories in their books to impress readers. They want to write books in simple language that can be easy to understand.
