(Al-Anoud Hussain Sheryan, a 19-year-old girl disfigured in an acid attack by her abusive husband, sits at a hospital where she is undergoing treatment in Yemen’s capital Sanaa on January 28, 2021 as a woman unwraps her veil to show her injuries. – Married at the age of 12, rejected at 16, and then disfigured in an acid attack, Sheryan’s fate is a shocking illustration of abuse in a society beset by war and poverty. Now aged 19, the young Yemeni woman agreed to relate her ordeal at the hands of her abusive husband — rare testimony in a country where domestic violence is largely hidden.
