What kinds of captivity are girls in today?
Apart from being in physical captivity like Leah and others, many girls are held in emotional, sexual, and religious captivity in Nigeria and around the world.
Some girls are afraid to go to school because of the threat of an attack.
Some women are left vulnerable after their husbands have been killed in an attack.
