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. 

This hurt deep in my soul

NYPD beat up and arrest teenage girl and her brother in Times Square for no reason.

This is what’s wrong with our justice system.

He was a great guy. Artistic as hell. He had a vision, helped people change their perspective on things. Where’s the justice in tasing him to death?

For the first time I know what it’s like to have had sex and feel completely unloved. I hate you for that.

I used to be such a strong person. Despite depressions dark cloud, I always kept on. I just don’t see that light at the end of this tunnel. I was finally happy. I fell in love with my best friend. There was happiness, trust, love, and so much laughter. We built a life together, and I finally felt that comfort and security that I hadn’t felt since I was really young. I don’t know how to accept this. I don’t know how to move on again, in every sense. I feel like I’m stuck in an anxiety attack. I cry all the time, it’s basically my new hobby. I’m sick to my stomach when I think about this all being thrown away. So stressed that I can’t keep any food in for long. What do you do when the people you love, forget to love you back. How do you pick yourself back up. & then uproot your entire life yet again? I can’t seem to find the answer to this one.
