16 Days Campaign Day 3
Marianne was on her way to university when she was approached by a man on a motorbike who grabbed her, took her to an isolated location and poured acid on her face. The area was deserted, so despite her calls for help no one came to her aid. Marianne’s face burned, stinging and swelling to the point where her lips and eyes were no longer visible. The assailant, Marianne’s brother in-law, had long been harassing her, initiating unwanted sexual advances and imploring her to marry him.
