Fate of child brides goes prime time on Turkish TV

A highly anticipated Turkish soap opera “Life Goes On” focuses on the fate of a 15-year-old girl from a poor family in the region of Anatolia who is married to a 70-year-old man. The soap opera, which recently debuted on Turkish television, coincides with the release of the documentary film, “Child Brides,” following a women’s rights group’s 18-month information and awareness campaign in a country where every second woman was married off as a teenager.
