can you imagine making the choice that lubna hussein has made?
she faced a criminal trial, and the distinct possibility that she would be flogged (40 lashes, with a plastic whip, which usually leaves permanent scars), finally choosing a month in jail instead of paying a $200 fine...
all because she believes simply that: women in sudan should be allowed to wear trousers.
note: 10 of the 11 other women she was arrested with (for wearing trousers) have already been flogged.
women are NOT equal in our world yet. don't take your pants for granted.
