Murshida lives with her mother, a rag picker, and spends the day along with her 7-year-old brother at a landfill picking through other people’s garbage to find salvageable bits to resell or recycle. The children counted themselves lucky if they find a discarded toy or plastic jewelry to play with. (Photo by Altaf Qadri/AP Photo)

A kangri is an age-old device for keeping warm, consisting of a decoratively woven wicker case housing an earthen pot in which charcoal is burned. Many families make their living making and selling kangris, which cost from $3 to $32 each, depending on quality. Kashmiris usually buy a new one each year, and visitors also buy them as souvenirs, along with the samovar, a traditional Kashmiri tea pot. (Photo by Mukhtar Khan/AP Photo)

Kenya Women March for Right to Wear Mini-Skirts

“The grainy mobile phone video shows a mob of Kenyan men surround a woman and grab, grasp and yank her clothes until she is naked. Several such videos have emerged recently of attacks by males who deem a woman to be provocatively dressed. The attacks have created a groundswell of anger that saw mostly women protesters flood downtown Nairobi Monday. The hashtag #MyDressMyChoice is trending in Kenya’s social media, as this East African country sees a clash between new, Western lifestyles and traditional African ways. Rachel Machua wore what she called “a little black dress … my normal outfit” to Monday’s protest. She views the recent attacks as stemming from socio-economic conditions: Lower income men are attacking successful, well-dressed women. The attacks are not overtly religious in nature, though this is a conservative, mostly Christian country. The women at the march described “normal” levels of sexual harassment over the years and said that peers will warn other women that “you’re gonna get undressed” for wearing a particular outfit. Women play an active role in Kenyan society. The country’s foreign minister is a woman, though few women hold high-ranking elected office. Parliament is a virtual men’s club, unlike in neighboring Rwanda, where more than half of parliament is female”. – Jason Straziuso via The Associated Press.

A recent incident in which a mob of men surrounded a woman and tore her clothes off, leaving her naked on the street in front of a bus stop after alleging that she was improperly dressed, is one of several such videos that have surfaced online in recent days leading to a groundswell of anger that on Monday prompted around 1000 demonstrators, including a number of men supporting the women’s cause, to march through the capital and protest online using the hashtag #MyDressMyChoice.
