Modeling a Wedding Skirt

This Roma girl is posing with her big sister’s wedding skirt, as if trying it on for size. Soon the younger sister will leave school. She will have had a year or two of schooling in total. Her family does not see the benefits of education, and they are fearful that she will get abducted and raped into a forced marriage if they don’t keep her close to home. Pretty soon it will be her turn to wear the white skirt in a marriage arranged by her family the traditional way.
