In this photo taken Saturday Jan. 26, 2013 Bawba Mint Baba Ahmed is photographed in Mopti, Mali. Bawba Mint Baba Ahmed's sewing teacher singled her out in front of the class, telling her: "You look like a rebel." Others threatened to slit her throat, she says, drawing a finger across her neck. Now the 29-year-old has dropped out of school and spends her days hiding inside her mud-walled home with her mother and two sisters, fearing retaliation from those who accuse her of being an Islamist simply because she is Arab.
