These are the names of Nigeria’s kidnapped girls | Feministing 
Ed. note: Some readers have expressed concern that posting these names may put the girls at further risk. We take that concern seriously, but given that the list has been released by a Nigerian organization and has been reported on by both the Nigerian and US media, we feel comfortable keeping it up here. We hope that the good that comes from putting names to this injustice outweighs any potential harm caused by their release. 
Thanks to the tireless efforts of activists — on the ground and on social media — the world finally seems to be caring about Nigeria’s kidnapped girls. That this case has belatedly started getting the attention it deserves is likely due in part of the horror of so many young people taken at one time. As many as 276 girls have been abducted — unbelievably, just last night, in the midst of growing international pressure to #bringbackourgirls, eight more were taken.
But though the stark numbers are powerful, it’s important to remember that each of these girls is an individual, with a family, friends, dreams — and a name.
