Pictures of the Protests in Egypt - Women in the Focus

I guess everyone heard, read or watched already a lot about the recent protests which happened in January in Tunisia and now in Egypt. But not many of the international press and media (and completely to forget about the Egyptian press) are focusing on the women behind the protests. The number of the women are now growing as they see a big chance for themselves to claim more rights and achieving a much better life in freedom.
No matter in which Egyptian city you look (Cairo, Alexandria and many more), wherever there is and has been a protest women are taking part and not only in the background. More and more of them are brave enough to show up in the first row or even in confrontation with the military like the following pictures will show you!

Blessed be the people in Egypt, so that they may receive the freedom for which they are fighting!
