Women's Rights in Yemen

I came across this article while looking up information on the kidnapped Americans. Apparently, the fight for women's rights has finally reached the rural community in Yemen. Some of the men are complaining that their women are rebelling. The women are just excited that they have rights and are now demanding them. They even stopped the marriage of a 12-year-old girl, by convincing her to defy her father by not giving her consent to the marriage. Be sure to check it out.
