Description

Video report about a women's march against the rule of SCAF and against the use of violence against women protesters by the military. A few days earlier, a video of soldiers dragging a woman along the ground, exposing her blue bra, went viral and caused outrage in Egypt and beyond.
The protest was remarkable for the large number of women who participated. It was the first mass demonstration led by women, objecting to violence against women. It occurred at a time of ongoing protests against military rule and specific opposition to the appointment of Kamal al-Ganzouri, a minister under the former regime, as prime minister.
