Women Take to Streets in Bahrain on International Women’s Day

In Bahrain, hundreds of women took to the streets this Tuesday, marching for their rights in the main streets of the capital.  They also demanded the end of the monarchy.  The women in their traditional dress were the protagonists of this peaceful protest, forming a human chain in the streets of Manama.  With their signs and slogans, they made clear that they too are fighting for profound changes in their society.
