11 #WomensMarch Signs That Say It All for Middle Eastern Women

Hundreds of thousands of women marched in unity Saturday against the inauguration of president Donald Trump and to say it was breathtaking would be an understatement. Celebrities and speakers rallied across the country and were even joined by fellow countries to give Trump a piece of their minds.

It all started with a Facebook post asking for a march that could be a sustained campaign of protest in a polarized America, protecting women’s reproductive rights and immigration and civil rights for all citizens.

Yet during the woes of Americans, we can’t help but think how so much worse it is on the other side of the world for all of us Middle Eastern and Arab women. Can you imagine if all women march what we’ll be asking for? The simple right to walk in the street without being harassed, to have a law that will protect me as a divorcee or a single mother, to be able to express myself freely without being shamed or pressured by the whole society, for a parliament member to be punished when he suggests I go through a virginity test to apply for college, for men to understand that a woman is not an object and, yes I will go there, to be allowed to drive a car in the streets and so much more.

This march is inspirational and liberating and here are some signs that every Middle Eastern woman can relate to today.
