Say “No” to arranged marriage
Maria (pseudonym) was born in a large farmer family in Bangladesh. Her parents wanted to marry her off to close relatives. At that time Maria was only 22 years old, but she had already been divorced for three times. Maria rejected another arranged marriage and decided to run away from home.
On the way from the village to the capital, the bus driver noticed Maria. Knowing that she was lost, the bus driver offered to introduce her to work in a factory. To her surprise, the bus driver sold her to a small brothel. Maria was bent on leaving the control of her parents; however, she fell into another trap of oppression.
