IWD Million Woman March in Cairo disrupted
Helen G // 8 March 2011
Egyptian activists had called for a Million Woman March on Tuesday, demanding “fair and equal opportunity for all Egyptian citizens — beyond gender, religion or class.”
But the turnout appeared to be no more than than 1,000, and the event quickly degenerated into shouting matches between the two sides.
“Men are men and women are women and that will never change and go home, that’s where you belong,” some of the anti-feminist demonstrators chanted.
There were men on both sides of the protest.
