Meet the Journalist: Sarah A. Topol

In January 2017, photographer Glenna Gordon and writer Sarah Topol traveled to Nigeria for one month to report a story for The New York Times Magazine about Boko Haram's child abductions. They heard the stories of children, many of whom served as soldiers. Some provided tactical or logistical support while others were trained to use weapons. The young girls were forcibly married, often to more than one man.
