Poverty and tradition are the major factors that lead to child marriage. In Bangladesh, 66% of girls are married before the age of 18. Born and raised in a poor family, 16-year-old Tahmina refused an arranged marriage by her parents, and now she cycles from school to school to advocate resisting child marriage.

KAWABATA Kohei has been working on documentaries since 1997 and joined PAONETWORK five years ago. His experiences are spread over all types of fields, including a documentary about the emotional conflicts of bureaucrats from Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs during the Iraq War, in which Japan deployed its defence forces in another country for the first time since World War II.
He recently has been working principally for NHK, focusing mainly on global issues. His recent documentaries cover topics such as the United States’ gun problem, in which a member of an assembly in Tucson, Arizona, introduced a progressive bill to control guns and faced aggressive opposition from gun supporters; the revolution in Egypt, where families are searching for their sons and daughters who disappeared; and Syrian lobbyists who are negotiating with the US government in Washington DC to intervene in the Syrian conflict.
