8th of March in Tahrir – International Women’s Day

8th of march in Tahrir

During last year’s march some of them were harassed, nevertheless they didn’t give into intimidations and shouted even louder for more rights.

Unfortunately there weren’t a lot of them, but those that were present were more determined then ever and, considering the country in which they live, brave enough to face not only the government, but the whole society.

“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?” 

Mahatma Gandhi
