A Yemeni girl who broke with tribal tradition to obtain a divorce were named on November 10, 2008 among Glamour magazine’s “Women of the Year.” More unusually, the magazine also awarded its prize to human rights lawyer Shada Nasser and Nujood Ali. As a 10-year-old bride in Yemen, Ali took the stand in court, aided by Nasser, and was granted a historic divorce. AFP PHOTO/KHALED FAZAA (Photo credit should read KHALED FAZAA/AFP/Getty Images)
