An Awakened Woman: Child Bride to International Scholar

Season 23 Episode 17 | 56m 46s

Growing up in rural Zimbabwe without electricity or running water, Tererai Trent was married at age 11, had three children by age 18 - all the while yearning for an education that seemed to be a dream hopelessly out of reach. She is one of the most internationally recognized voices for quality education and women’s empowerment - and distinguished as Oprah Winfrey’s “All-Time Favorite Guest."
