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 judge, Mohammed 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.
A further progression in the feminist hate saga…
Got sent this by a complete stranger on twitter for pointing out the sexist double standards regarding Jennifer Lawrence… I don’t think she realises she is further demonstrating why we need feminism…
To the person who leaked the photos:
I will unfollow you so fast if you reblog those leaked pictures of Jen.
If you defend a guy for his nudes getting leaked (“aw it’s okay we still love you1!1!1!!!”) but then shame a girl for her nudes getting leaked (“what a slut she shouldn’t have taken them in the first place!!1!1!!!”) I hope you step on many lego pieces at once.
jem’s throat going dry when he sees tessa’s bedroom
tessa knocking over the milk bottle from being so nervous
tessa nearly dropping the teacups when she looks at jem’s eyes
jem barely being able to stop himself from pushing tessa up against the bookcase and kissing her until neither of them can…
A story for those who might have wondered what Tessa and Jem did after they met on Blackfriars Bridge in the epilogue of Clockwork Princess.
Those who do not like Tessa&Jem together or Jessa sexytimes probably should skip this. (You will not miss anything that will…

Not excited for back to school but on the other hand my pencil case is adorable
This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
sounds to me like he was asking for it
Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know.
If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck
this post makes me so unbelievably happy in so many ways
tODAY AT WORK, AT MCDONALD’S THESE PEOPLE WITH MASKS CAME IN AND I ALMOST PISSED MY PANTS AND THEY SHOUTED “EVERYONE STAY CALM, JUST CAN YOU DO US A FAVOR” AND I WAS LIKE HOLY SHIT, HOLY SHIT, THIS IS IT, OMG THEY’RE GONNA PULL OUT A GUN, GOD HELP US, AND EVERYONE LOOKED SO PALE AND WE ALL LOOKED AT EACH OTHER LIKE HOLY SHIT AND THEN THE ONE GUY SAID “I NEED YOU TO DO THE YMCA WITH US FOR OUR BLOG”
