Our Girl

This is a short film on forced marriage. It includes an animation followed by clips of young women talking about their experiences. There is a second film called "True Stories" that consists of longer pieces of the same women describing their experience of forced marriage in more detail.

The film is also accompanied by a Resource Pack aiming to provide additional information about forced marriage, as well as offering ideas for activities to raise awareness of forced marriage among professionals, young people and wider communities.
