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.

Legend of Korra: The interchange that Crowns Zaheer as the best Villain

…a.k.a. that awkward moment the villain from LoK has a point.

(…)

Zaheer: I want what you want, to restore balance to this world

Korra: I don’t think our ideas of balance are the same

Z : Are you sure about that?

You kept the spirit portals open, but why stop there?

Bringing the spirits back should be the beginning.

K: What do you mean?

Z: The idea of having nations and governments is as foolish as keeping the human and spirit realms separate.

You’ve had to deal with a moronic president and a tyrannical queen. Don’t you think the world would be better off if leaders like them were eliminated?

K: I mean, I don’t really agree with what they’ve done, but taking out world leaders isn’t the answer.

Z: It wasn’t too long ago that the airbenders were nearly all wiped out thanks to the Fire Lord’s desire for world dominance.

True freedom can only be achieved when oppressive governments are torn down.

K: It will throw the World into chaos.

Z: Exactly. (MWAHAHAH)

The natural order is disorder.

Do you know who once said, “New Growth cannot exist without first the destruction of the old?”

K: No.

Z: The wise Guru Laghima, an Airbender.

You know, being locked away for so many years, I was beginning to lose Hope. I knew I would be the one to destroy the old world and plant the seeds for a new world to flourish.

K: Zaheer, please, as an Airbender, you could help make a positive difference in the world instead of destroying it.

Z: But you must realize that once Change begins, it cannot be stopped, even by the Avatar.

I know I am biased but this show can be…so

i swear, sometimes i just want to quit this website because of how ignorant some people are

This is why 4chan doesn’t even need to make much effort to destroy the SJW from  tumblr. They destroy themselves.

"Boys will be boys" is never an excuse for violence against women. Saying “Boys will be boys” is only telling young boys that they can get away with doing whatever they want to women, that they’re entitled to do it because they’re male. We need to wipe this phrase from our glossary, if you ask me. We need to start holding people accountable for their actions.

~Anna

keep in mind, thanks to Feminists like yourself India doesn’t recognize that those “boys that will be boys” can actually be the victim of rape.

Go Feminism!

women are gangraped in india every fucking day & the guys who do it get away with it. your idea of feminism is wrong.

Which had zero to do with the point I made… unless you’re coming out in agreement with their position that men not be protected by rape laws?

I bet you’re a Feminist…

well..

“According to Shahid Khan, a professor at the Aga Khan University in Pakistan: “Women are considered the property of the males in their family irrespective of their class, ethnic, or religious group. The owner of the property has the right to decide its fate. The concept of ownership has turned women into a commodity which can be exchanged, bought and sold”.”

Violence against man - It is a just cause but maybe it is not the just cause the original post was aiming for?  The truth is female in India are deemed as second class citizens. I mean, restore the honor of unmarried girl by a forced marriage is a thing there, EVEN if she was raped. I guess one could argue, that with extreme poverty, religious violence and a lot of caste related violence maybe there are other problems we should address first in order to solve that one. But that was also not the point you were making, was it?
