Watch: Afghan girl "I was 6 when Dad sold me into forced marriage... No one loves me"

The video below gives a small glimpse into the difficult lives of women and girls in Afghanistan which is a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
In Afghanistan where there is no age limit on marriage, girls are considered property, and are sold into forced marriages.
Every year women and girls all over the Asia and Africa are burned, beaten, or stabbed to death by family members because they are seen as having transgressed social codes of "honor."
The real number of women and girls who are murdered in honor killings is unknown as most murders are reported as accidents.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
