    The recent popular uprising in Yemen has brought new opportunities for women who have been under-represented for years.

    Now, months after the protests of the so-called "Arab Spring", the success of Tawakul Karman, the first Arab woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, continues to push Yemeni women to work towards ending centuries of discrimination.

    Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbara reports from Sanaa, where he spoke to several female activists to end the mistreatment of women in Yemen.
