Sonita

Meet Sonita, an 18 year-old Afghan rapper. The problem is – she’s a girl. Living in Iran, singing and making rap music for a girl is strictly prohibited. Her mother and brothers planned to have her married to a stranger in Afghanistan. The bride price was $9000. Fortunately, she escaped the marriage. Sonita is continuing to rap – and fighting violence with music and art.
