FORCED MARRIAGE IN THE US: A TED-X TALK BY FRAIDY REISS
Monday, April 30 • 1 pm
Johnston Hall, Multicultural Center (Off of Hawk Haven)
Fraidy will share the experiences she faced when pressured at 19 to marry a man she barely knew who turned out to be violent, and how she overcame that fear to escape her marriage, even though her family shunned her for it. She’ll talk about the fear that forced and child marriage survivors across the U.S. experience every day, and what Americans can do to end these human rights abuses that many people assume do not happen in the U.S. Marsha Robinson, Miami Regionals' Visiting Assistant Professor of World History, will facilitate an open discussion after the screening.
