Santadevi Meghwal, a 19-year-old woman from India, has defied tradition and rejected a marriage arranged when she was just a baby. "I was 11 months old when I was married off," she said. "I want to study and become a teacher."
Meghwal now faces a fine of $25,000 for rejecting the marriage. She is working with a local charity to bring legal action against the village council who imposed the fine.
