10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man

Here’s what I found after looking into it. 

Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding.

On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judgeMohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.

Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.

But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.

Also this girl has her own book

I just want some feminists to focus more on this than on defending Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.

Realistically, what can they do? Most of the feminists that you likely encounter are based in USA, Canada, maybe UK. What can they do to affect attitudes and policies in a place like Yemen?

They can raise awareness. Tumblr is a global site where you can donate to people in many countries to aid them.

A very good thing they can do, for one, is set up donations for this kid or other kids. They can put efforts to start up shelters for such incidents.

There’s a lot of things western feminists can do. This post only has almost 9k posts, whereas a post about male tears has 36K.

Divorces are EXTREMELY rare in Yemen. This is great.

Spread this like wildfire. THIS is where feminism is still highly necessary.

coldmuse asked: wtf happened to Isaac are we really going to sit around all season & just pretend he didn't just disappear into thin air???

lonewolfed:

Short recap on what’s going on with Isaac as of now:

He’s probs eating baguettes staring mournfully at the river Seine.

And that’s what you missed on Teen Wolf.

cuddlyscisaac:

okay the whole scene where liam tells scott that he’s not like him and doesn’t want to ride off to save people really gets to me because isaac wouldn’t have even hesitated to jump on the back of that motorcycle
