Vor ein paar Tagen fiel mir eine englischsprachige Papierpublikation im Schnellhefter in die Hände, die den Arabischen Frühling aus Frauensicht dokumentiert. Ich veröffentliche in loser Folge daraus im Mainlabor. Um mich nicht zu frustrieren, übersetze ich nur, was sich in mir automatisch übersetzt.

Women and the Arab Spring

Chronologie eines Aufstands - The universality of human rights

Om 18 January 2011, in Cairo, Asmaa Mahfouz, a blogger, posted a video calling for a demonstration in Tahrir Square to protest against the Mubarak regime.

 

The next day, in Sana’a, Tawakkol Karman, an activist and journalist, demonstrating in solidarity with the Tunisian people, called on Yemenis to rise up against their corrupt leaders.

 

On 15 February, in Benghazi, mothers, sisters, daughters and widows of men killed in Tripol’s Abu Salim prison took tot he streets to express their rejection of an oppressive regime.

 

From Tunisia to Bahrain, from Egypt to Syria, women from all Backgrounds demanded Democracy, social justice, freedom, dignity and equality. Women activists, bloggers and journalists mobilised and informed the world what was happening. These upsrings, through the demands they generated, reasserted the universality of human rights.
