Once again the feminists in America are AWOL. Are they okay with females being beaten by the opposite sex for daring to walk beside a male in a protest? Based on their silence, I suppose they have no problem with such behavior.
Feminism isn't about looking out for women; it's about promoting liberalism.

Yemen: Islamists Beating up Women for Marching Alongside Men During Anti-Regime Protests…
"Let me guess, they just want 'democracy.'
(Yemen Observer) — 'The peaceful revolution should be refined and the “terrorist culture of the Taliban” should be expelled from its ranks, a Yemeni opposition leader has said on Saturday.
Dr. Mohammed Abdul Malik al-Mutawakil, former chairman of the Islamist-led opposition coalition, called on opposition leaders — especially the Islamists — to stop beating up women who march with men.
He also told them to apologize to the women who were beaten up by extremists for marching alongside men last week. Al-Mutawakil is the secretary-general of an opposition party, Federation of Popular Forces, which is a small Islamic party from the Zaidi-Shiite sect and part of the opposition coalition Joint Meeting Parties (JMP).
Al-Mutawakil said that he would boycott all opposition meetings until its leaders publicly apologized to women and stopped such barbaric behavior. In total, seven women and 11 men were beaten up and arrested for hours by extremist Islamists for marching together at an anti-government protest in the capital Sana’a on April 16.
The 18 women and men who were attacked included well-known female activists like Arwa Othman, Huda al-Attas, Jamila Ali Raja, Elham al-Kebsi and Sara Jamal. They published a joint statement to the media and Yemen’s general prosecutor in which they demanded prosecution of perpetrators.'"
