At the tender age of 12, most little girls are playing with dolls or jumping rope. However, Hadizatou Mani was being sold into slavery in her home country of Niger for $500. Although Niger outlawed the practice in 2003, child slavery still occurs—primarily woman and children—today. Now, in her mid-twenties, Mani took her country to a West African court for failing to enforce its own laws. She won her case in 2008 and countless 12 year-old girls worldwide won too.
