Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @TooYoungToWed // Niamat weeps over the grave of his daughter Khalida, who set herself on fire after enduring years of abuse from her husband and in-laws. Her younger sister, Khadija, 8 (right), was her main caregiver while she lay dying with burns. The family lives in a small village outside of Jalalabad, Afghanistan. I first encountered the issue of child marriage while working as a news photographer in Afghanistan, where I met several girls in a Herat burn ward. More than 1/2 of the girls who attempted suicide by self-immolation were married as children. Poverty, strong patriarchal values and poor access to education are behind Afghanistan’s high child marriage rates. This April, Afghanistan's Ministry of Women’s Affairs and the Ministry of Information and Culture launched a “National Action Plan To Eliminate Early and Child Marriage” to better address the issue. This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Puteaux, Paris. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo. The show, which opened June 1 and runs through this Sunday, Sept. 24, is complete with educational information about the dangers of #childmarriage and the efforts underway around the world to end the practice – including our work at our nonprofit organization of the same name, @TooYoungToWed.

#Ridiculousness! Deadlift Series Part 8️⃣ of 8️⃣. What happened to episode 7??? Don’t worry about it. 😜 This video is partly serious😐, but mostly joking😁. We thought, what is the ultimate way to get as much feedback about your spinal/hip position without someone being there to help you? The answer is #FaceDickStick and #HeadBackCrack. 🙌The stick on the front will ensure that you hinge over without arching🐋 the back and stand up using your 🍑glutes/hammies rather than your back. The stick on the back will ensure that you hinge over without rounding 🐬the back. . . To be honest, all of these sticks📏, bands, mirrors, and other feedback mechanisms are great training tools temporarily, but you don’t have any of them in the real world🗺. When you are in the kitchen🍲, at work🛠, with your kids👨‍👧‍👧, working out🏋️, traveling✈️, etc… all you have to use for feedback is your only brain and body.🤔 Learning to do these movements properly without feedback is the ultimate goal. Remember, we hinge about 3500x/day to some degree. Whether it is a tiny lean over the counter or a full deadlift to pick up your kid, you are hinging! . . Reviewing the steps of the deadlift: 1️⃣Stand tall with your weight centered over the middle of your foot. Your ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles should be relatively in line. 2️⃣Tuck your pelvis posterior slightly, engaging the glutes and lower abs. 3️⃣Engage the core by pulling the ribcage down. 4️⃣Pull your shoulder blades down and slightly back to engage the mid back and protect the spine. 5️⃣Drive your toes into the ground and grip the floor with the arch of your foot. Actively rotate the ankle, leg, knee, and thigh outward slightly. 6️⃣Keeping a neutral spine and pelvis, hinge over and sit back slightly. Bend the knees a little bit as you hinge over, keeping your shins vertical. 7️⃣When standing, straighten the legs and thrust the pelvis forward. Maintaining a tight core. . . Have a kickass weekend everyone!🤙🤘🙌 💻Written by Andrew Dettelbach
