Yemeni women demonstrate against president
In Yemen, more than one hundred thousand people demonstrated against President Saleh. It was a reaction to a remark by the president yesterday that to demonstrate is supposedly “anti-Islamic”. Among the protesters were also many women who reacted to misogynistic statements by the president.
