Heartbreaking. These children are so strong, so bright and morally conscious on that side of the world

Not sure if her uncle has a different attitude about marrying so young, for her sake I really hope he does

I hope all is well with her and that she gets the chance to live out her dreams

I fear for her, even if she escapes marriage, the backlash for condemning her parents might be harsh

My 13-year-old Yemini classmate was married off to her 27-year-old cousin when we were in the 8th grade.  She kept telling us her father was going to do it, but we always thought she was joking.  None of us had ever heard of something like that.  I remember speaking to one of my classmates years later when we were going to college and she was like, "the poor girl probably has like 4 kids by now."
 
Its crazy how we're living in 2013 but the culture in some nations is reminiscent of pre-colonial America.  I just hope the women there are able to form organizations and advocacy groups to fight male oppression.

against her

I hope not because she's genuinely afraid, justifiably afraid, she's seen the reality other girls didn't survive

They, the adults, must understand on some level

I hate cultures/countries like this  The way they treat women & children is heartbreaking and disgusting
