Through songs, radio drama and their own YouTube channel, Yegna champion women's rights across Ethiopia, where many young women never get the chance to go to secondary school. Last year, the band lost its UK aid funding after a negative press campaign, but they remain determined to press home their message. The Guardian went to Addis Ababa to find them still inspiring young girls to assert their right to education and say no to child marriage.
