Unchained’s leader, Fraidy Reiss, was featured today in a piece on PRI’s The World titled “Child brides are a little-known, but very real, problem in America today.”
Fraidy described her own abusive marriage, arranged for her when she was 19, and talked about her work to help other women and girls escape forced marriages.
