Mothers and fathers the world over have dreams for their daughters; for love and happiness, for fulfilment and equality, for peace and prosperity....

But in all too many countries their daughters still have little option but to follow an age old pattern: forced into early marriage and risking death to give birth. In Afghanistan, 1 in 11 women die in childbirth, and in many countries it is more likely that girls will die giving birth than go to school. This reinforces the vicious circle of low education, poverty, child marriage -- and back to early death in childbirth.

The Dreams for My Daughter exhibition, by leading photographer Joanna Vestey, will be launched at WOW -- Women of the World festival at the UK's famous Southbank Centre from International Women's Day, 8th March until Sunday 11th March 2012.For info go to www.southbankcentre.co.uk/wow from 3rd March and will also be shown as part of the Exhibition at Southbank. It features a soundtrack by leading East African hip hop artist Sugu aka Mr 11- now an MP and a White Ribbon Alliance Tanzania Champion.
