Esta sección la queremos dedicar a las noticias diarias, a los eventos que surgen día a día, a conmemoraciones, manifestaciones, actividades que surgen de un día para otro. Que sirva como lugar de concentración, de encuentro, de citas para que asociaciones de mujeres o personas individuales puedan publicitar aquí sus historias. Que las puedan contar y ser expandidas para el conocimiento y empoderamiento de todas nosotras. Queremos que este sea un territorio donde todas podamos enviar nuestros pensamientos, ideas, manifestaciones, citas... y puedan ser leídas y compartidas. Nuestra red de redes.
On March 9th, military police and civilian men attacked and destroyed the camp of peaceful demonstrators in Tahrir Square. 18 women were arrested and dragged to a museum not far away where they were abused and violated.
Tell the Head of the military in Egypt to stop the violence against female protesters.»
The women were beaten and strip searched as groups of men watched and photographed them. They were also forced to submit to a "virginity test" and told that any woman who was not either married or a virgin would be charged with prostitution as well.
The women of Egypt played a vital role in the protests in Tahrir Square, standing up for their freedom alongside men, and they deserve respectful treatment from their fellow Egyptians and their government
Join us in demanding that the head of the military end the violence against women and that peaceful protesters of both sexes be treated with respect. »
Thanks for taking action!
