“In spite of the fact that they stood in the first lines of the revolution that took down Hosni Mubarak, ten month later the world watches at video showing how policement catch, beat up and tear the clothes off female protesters and soldiers using clubs to beat up an unconscious woman lying on the ground, with one soldier kicking her with his bood over exposed breasts“, says the Woman and Society's statement for the media issued yesterday, December 21, 2011 and signed by Nada Ler Sofronić.

The Woman and Society Centre also noted the cynical fact that we witness such horrendous sights just several days after the conclusion of the global 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence Campaign.
