Deadline Extended and New Speakers: Stephanie Sinclair and Christina Piaia

Family members and guests dance before the wedding of three young girls Radha, 15, Gora, 13, and Rajni, 5, to their young grooms Aleen, Giniaj, and Kaushal. The three couples - three sisters married to three brothers - were married on the Hindu holy day of Akshaya Tritiya, called Akha Teej in North India. The auspicious day is said to bring good luck to couples married then and is widely known in Rajasthan as the day most child marriages occur. Despite legislation forbidding child marriage in India (Child Marriage Restraint Act-1929) and the much more progressive Prohibition of Child Marriage Act (2006) and many initiatives to prevent child marriage, marrying children off at a very tender age continues to be accepted by large sections of society.
