Hiss is a snake bracelet from the 1st century A.D.

Designed to look like a coil around the wearer, this would have been worn in a pair on the wrist or upper arm. A tinier head appears coming from the snake’s tail. Look closely.

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 judgeMohammed 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.

Divorces are EXTREMELY rare in Yemen. This is great.

Spread this like wildfire. THIS is where feminism is still highly necessary.

"the lipstick on your teeth is
a bright and tangy red, and
for a moment it tastes like blood —
salted, vibrant rust.

there is a rush in your ears
that is heady with memory
and the thought that your mouth
is a graveyard, your teeth stained
with the epitaphs of all the words
you’ve crushed between them.

your grandmother tells you not to
dress like a boy and you wonder
when your idea of androgyny became
synonymous with masculine; your skirt
is bright, bright, but your friends have
stolen their eyes from vultures and you realize
that pleasing anyone but yourself is impossible.

you stop filing your nails because
his back looks that much better
carrying those bright red marks. the
bathroom stall calls you a whore. the
boy calls you baby, sweetheart, babe.
when did your name become such an effort?

the metal in your mouth is
a reminder to open up instead of biting down
and you make love to a girl with
a forked tongue because you’ve always
needed someone to show you how lovely
it is to be dark, and dangerous, and wild.

there is blood between your teeth and
a bullet on your tongue and
the knife on your thigh is cold, cold;
there’s a shark in your stomach
and your lungs are filled with flames
and this is the first time you’ve ever felt at home."


R.K., there’s a bullet on my tongue (via thenemeton)
