About This Lesson

Amina is a young woman constrained by Afghan society, confined by her gender and expected only to serve men. But this child bride is determined to make a better life for herself – to reject the limitations prescribed by society and to lead others to do the same. “Look into my eyes. Do you see it now? I am change.”

This lesson is part of a collection of topics on Share My Lesson from Girl Rising that work in conjunction. It includes the Amina video chapter, a teacher guide, background information on Afghanistan, and issue fact sheets about Child Marriage, Cultural Influences and Oppression.
