History:  North Yemen became independent from the Ottoman Empire in 1918.  The British withdrew from Aden in 1967, then South Yemen became a Marxist government.  For twenty years the North and South states fought until they were officially unified in 1990.  There is still much hatred, and revolutions are common place.  Women's rights are almost non-existent in Yemen, as it is one of the mid-east's poorest nations.
