IWD Million Woman March in Cairo disrupted

According to ColorLines, a Million Woman March in Cairo today was “met by some men shouting anti-feminist slogans”. Via CNN International:

Egyptian activists had called for a Million Woman March on Tuesday, demanding “fair and equal opportunity for all Egyptian citizens — beyond gender, religion or class.”

But the turnout appeared to be no more than than 1,000, and the event quickly degenerated into shouting matches between the two sides.

“Men are men and women are women and that will never change and go home, that’s where you belong,” some of the anti-feminist demonstrators chanted.

There were men on both sides of the protest.
