'No opinions'

"Girls in Nepal are not encouraged to have opinions or develop their individuality, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds are at the bottom of the heap," says Sue Carpenter, organiser of a photography exhibition in the country to help such girls find their voice."

"The exhibition features the work of 22 participants, aged six to 17-years-old, who live in the care of Save our Sisters Bahini, an organisation in the town of Pokhara that accommodates girls who have been abused or neglected."
