‘I’m Better off Dead’ 11-Year Old Escapes Arranged Marriage

Standard

“Nada al-Ahdal, 11, broke a longstanding tradition of child marriages after she managed to run away from her parents and alert the authorities.

She then delivered a passionate testimony against the practice that is spreading across the web like a wildfire.”*

Nada Al-Ahdal, a Yemeni would-be 11-year old child bride, escaped the fate her parents set out for her. Just because giving children away sexually to adults is a tradition, doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do.
