Yemeni child bride will return to primary school - thank goodness

Nojoud Nasser, age 8, ran away from her 20 something year old husband and sought a divorce. (There is a picture of her with this article - she looks so tiny!)

A Yemeni court annulled her marriage and she can now return to school.

This brave little girl actually filed for divorce on her own - when I was eight I don't even think I could ride my bike to the bus stop without my mom. Nojoud, you are an inspiration.
