Stephanie Sinclair//Nujood Ali//via National Geographic

.

Nujood Ali was ten when she fled her abusive, much older husband and took a taxi to the courthouse in Sanaa, Yemen. The girl’s courageous act—and the landmark legal battle that ensued—turned her into an international heroine for women’s rights. Now divorced, she is back home with her family and attending school again.

the bravery of ms. ali in this impossible and f*ed up situation inspires one and all. i read this fantastic article about it by cynthia gorney over on national geographic. the  photographs that accompany it (you can find more here)by stephanie sinclair are haunting. i decided to link with the above picture of nujood ali because of its hopefullness and her apparent pluck.
