A group of Israeli women have stripped off in support of an Egyptian blogger who posed naked to highlight the lack of rights for women in the Arab country.
Aliaa Elmahdy, a 20-year-old student, posted a picture of herself wearing only stockings and red patent shoes. She received thousands of abusive messages, including death threats, following the post.
I love this story. It goes to show that people from all walks of life can band together in solidarity. The wonderful gesture by these Israeli women showing support for an Egyptian blogger who has received death threats for showing herself naked.
As a women, i always believe that the only people that can change the sexist views of some cultures are the women themselves. We've already seen women in Saudi Arabia laugh in the face of driving bans, get allowed to run for parliament, now in Egypt women stand up for the right to be able to get thier paps out
