In Kuwait, women rallied Thursday to demand safety and justice after the brutal murder of a woman earlier this week. The woman had filed against her murderer for harassment after she refused to marry him, but he was released on bail and went on to kidnap and stab her to death. This is a protester in Kuwait City.
Nawal Al-Sayegh: “It is very scary and very sad that in my own country, when I get into my car, I feel I need to lock the doors immediately. And it is very scary and very depressing that I have already taught my daughters how to protect themselves by holding their keys in a certain way while they’re walking to their car, or asking someone to accompany them from their place of work or study to their vehicles. It’s very scary that this is what our country has come to.”
