Social exclusion in southern Yemen

Cultural values in Yemen can have devastating consequences for the country's women.



    They are punished for behaviour that is said to bring shame on their families, and the price can be severe.

    It could be theft, drugs, sex outside marriage or just marriage without the family’s consent, but for some Yemeni women, such issues will remain with them for their whole life.

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall travelled to southern Yemen to visit one woman whose determination to help those she sees as victims of injustice is making a real difference.
