THE WOMEN’S REVOLUTION IN YEMEN

Manon Loizeau

Thousands of black niqabs march every week in Sanaa. Women of all generations and social classes, invisible up till now, relentlessly defy the government. They raise their fists in the air, demanding freedom and have even burnt their headscarves on the public square, requesting better equality. As months go by, encouraged by the wave of revolutions in the Arab world, the women of Yemen have become the protagonists of a major revolt. A double revolution is in place: the people’s revolution, and the women’s revolution. Nouveau : Since January 2011, in Yemen, a forgotten revolution is underway. Followed by the revolt of the women of Yemen, the fight of three of them: Tawakol Karman, Nobel Peace Prize in 2011, Nadia Abdullah, youth representative in the national dialogue and Ehsan Dogesh who camped for two years with her five children on the place of change. Each in its own way embodies the great free speech of women in Yemen.
