Acid Attacks on Women – level 1

16-09-2016 15:00

This story begins in India. A man wants to marry a girl. He is 32. She is 15. She says no.

Ten months later, the man finds her. He pushes her to the floor. He puts acid on her. This is very bad for her. The acid badly injures her.

She does not go out for four years. When she does, the girl feels bad. She feels like a victim. She does not want to feel like a victim. She wants to feel like a fighter. She knows that she must change things.

She starts a charity. This charity helps women like her. Now, she is also feeling better. People are nicer to her, too.

Difficult words: acid (a dangerous chemical), injured (if you are injured, there is something bad with your body), victim (a person who was injured or killed in a crime or accident).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
