Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History, Volume V Update

Monday, September 22, 2008
Remember young Nujood Ali, the 10 year old Yemeni girl who sued to divorce a much older man and won? She was featured in Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History, Volume V.

Well, after being granted her divorce, she was back in school last week, studying "Arabic, the Koran, mathematics and drawing."

Her ambition? "To be able to attend university and become a lawyer like Shada Nasser, the well-known Yemeni human rights advocate who helped her get her divorce."

Go, Nujood, go. All the way to the finish line and beyond.
