Taiwan: Nojoud Ali's book cover choice shows rooted discrimination

Allison on iPPOST talks about the rooted discrimination [1] (zht) from the example of Taiwanese publisher's business decision to use a white skin and golden hair girl's picture [2] on the cover of Nojoud Ali's book [3] in Chinese, while all the other editions around the world use Nojoud Ali [4]‘s real photo. “WTF? ? Who IS She? Isn't this book about a Yemen girl's true story? Why a obvious biography would use another person's picture as the cover who has nothing to do with it?”, argues Allison.
