When men with weapons beat women in the streets; gang up on them; pull them by their hair and kick them — stomp on them and expose them in public, we fear for what they do to women, children and the vulnerable in private.

Thank you to the women of Egypt for showing that the best way to fight oppression is in peace.

Peace in huge numbers, in the streets, in the faces of their oppressors:  That’s courage.

Thanks even more for showing that there is no better option than facing your oppressor, in peace, and demanding your rights be honored, with the rest of the world watching.
