Women Protesters of Egypt

by d

Egypt is being rocked from the bottom up.

Al Jazeera (which has had its Cairo office shut down by the Egyptian government) reports:

9:27 am [Egypt local time]: Making the rounds on the social networking site Facebook is an album compiled by user Leil-Zahra Mortada, who is collecting photos of women in the Egypt protests.

Mortada, the album‘s compiler says:

For everyone who has been asking where the women of Egypt are! I´m trying to compile all the photos with Egyptian women in them.

A homage to all those women out there fighting, and whose voices and faces are hidden from the public eye!

You’ll need a Facebook login to see the full album. If you don’t have one, here are some highlights.

  1. Woo, women revolutionaries.
    But I wonder what the role of Iran is in these protests (Iran has a history of supporting opposition movements in many Middle Eastern countries, and undermining the governments of those countries.)

    Not all revolutions yield positive results (let’s not forget Iran’s revolution in the 70s.)
