Yemeni girl from YouTube wants education, not marriage
Sanaa, Yemen (CNN) -- A young Yemeni girl stares defiantly into the camera. Her question is a shocking one, coming from an 11-year-old:
"Would it make you happy to marry me off?" asks Nada Al-Ahdal.
In the nearly two-and-a-half-minute video, which was uploaded to YouTube and quickly went viral, Nada accuses her parents of trying to get her married off in exchange for money. She explains how she doesn't want to be one of Yemen's child brides.
"Death would be a better option for me," she declares.
Nada also speaks on behalf of other Yemeni girls: "What about the innocence of childhood? What have the children done wrong so that you would marry them off like that?"
The video, which been seen by millions of people around the world, has put a spotlight once more on Yemen's child marriages.
It has also made Nada an online sensation, although questions have been raised: Did her story add up? Was she really being pressured to get married?
Nada's parents have repeatedly stressed they have no intention to marry her off. And Seyaj, Yemen's leading child-rights organization, said they believed portions of Nada's story were fabricated.

She will be fucked up either way, "education" aka school/job or marriage.

This is news because it puts the arab culture once again in bad daylight, which stimulates public opinion to take it over.
They have no intention of helping them in any way, they have the full intention to make them become us.
Before we ask questions about these topics they bring up we should ask questions about the ones who bring them up.

RE: Yemeni girl from YouTube wants education, not marriage
I agree with Jacque, I doubt its actually in the norm for the children of yemen to be sent off to marriage at these modern times, if anything it will be a very small minority of the children that undergo such cases but it seems more like CNN are picking it out and using it to brainwash the views of mass populations that are ignorant of the real situation in yemen. Have u considered that the 11 year old may have been told what will be asked and how to answer? Or how the video was able to become viral so quickly?
