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

Could you explain feminism in Islam?

fiftyshadesofhalaal answered:

Yes I can!

I know feminism can go both ways, (and please don’t get me wrong I’m not bashing on the Western standards of feminism. I’m just trying to let you see my reality from my perspective). I do wholeheartedly support most aspects of Western feminism for reasons which I’ll state at the end of this message.

I personally believe that Islam does an impeccable job at constantly elevating the status of Muslim women. And this, I may add, has been going on for centuries rather than just generations in Islamic history.

For example- Do you know why we cover ourselves? Because God has told us to, not man. To show that our worship and submission should be to no other but God. We uncover for just a few elite because guess what? Society has placed unwritten rules into the hands of innocent women and we refuse to accept them. No man should ever judge a woman because that is not his job, it’s God’s job.
When someone speaks to me on the streets, they see me for who I am and not WHAT I am because there’s nothing to see but my personality. They respect my opinions and take me rather seriously. Islam has liberated me by allowing me to become a person and not an item.

There is an entire chapter in the Quran dedicated to women. Women were always seen as an equal to men- never inferior. We are told that heaven lays beneath our mother’s feet, because she is the one who carried us and endured pains and for that we owe her our lives.

Muslim women are almost always seen as oppressed and inferior to society. This is NOT an effect of religion, but rather culture. Over the years, many groups has clashed their CULTURE with religion, and that is never a pretty outcome. And this is why I stand up to feminism to say that what they’re doing is completely wrong because we’ve been blessed with our rights by GOD many, many years ago.

If I were to go on, this would end up being an essay. Please do visit this link: http://www.whyislam.org/on-faith/status-of-women/ for more information. Thank you!
