'Nuff said

Women went out to Tahrir Square, women participated in planning the revolution.
They cleaned the square, they nursed the wounded, they also were killed when people in the square were shot. But after the revolution we notice that there are decisions that are being taken to exclude women.
We expected this revolution is going to include women as much as it includes men, in terms of liberty, in terms of equality, in terms of social justice. Apparently it is not.

-- Hoda Badran, chairwoman of the Alliance for Arab Women and a former senior UN official, quoted yesterday by the BBC. Plus ça change . . .
