[A day after soldiers brutally attacked and stripped a woman protestor in Tahrir Square in Cairo, thousands of women and men marched on 20 December from Tahrir Square to the Journalists` Syndicate and back to condemn the violence. Sarah Carr reports in Al Masry Al Youm that, "There was pervasive anger against the army, with frequent chants for the SCAF to leave power... `Tantawi is the supreme commander of harassment and violation of honor,` one placard read. ... `They know that we participated as much as men in the revolution. But we’re not scared,` Hadia Mohamed said. Thirty-six-year-old Nariman Youssef agreed. `The main thing is to show that we’re not afraid. They can kill us, hit us, beat us on our heads but we’re getting stronger.`"]
