My portrait of Gabrielle Gillespie, author of the bestseller 'A Father's Betrayal'. Gabrielle's story is truly heart-breaking, the most tragic display of man's inhumanity to man. The book is an account of Gabrielle's harrowing experience of being sold by her father as a child bride in Yemen and her subsequent 17 year struggle to escape and return to the UK with her children.
Gabrielle's continued efforts to raise awareness to protect children in danger of a similar plight is particularly humbling. There's more information on Yemeni child marriage and their campaign over on the Human Rights Watch website
