    Girls as young as 5 forced to marry in Yemen

    This is so horribly tragic. Thank God for the ones who have managed to get away. God protect the ones who haven't.

    Nujood Ali was able to escape when she was 10, four years after she was married to a 25 year old man, when she took a taxi, alone, to a courthouse and asked if she could get a divorce.

    Disgusting to say the least. I am amazed at what The United States will go to war for and I am equally amazed at what The United States will not go to war for. So many horrific crimes that are perpetrated on women and children on a daily basis in foreign countries and we, as a nation, do not voice our outrage nor do we, as a Nation, condemn. Our system here is far from perfect but at least there are laws on the books to try and protect children from pedophiles such as these pictured in the link above.

    I so agree!!! If women were allowed to be citizens & not property, these archaic countries could grow into prospering environments -- a positiveness to this Earth. However, men still live in fear of women . . . IMHO, of course
