Egypt: Musical Night Protests Violence Against Women

An Egyptian women rights group called on all women who have been subjected to violence to protest Thursday against violence through music, singing and dialogue.

The Appropriate Communication Techniques for Development Center (ACT) plans a celebration to end violence against women with the participation of women from all around the world in the Swiss Club of Giza district.

The event will be launched as an expression of resistance against all forms of violence under the title "One Billion Rising".

"We will be a voice for those who don't have any", said a statement by ACT demanding that all women raise their voices high against violence.

The statement added that even under pressure, women of Egypt will not resign public or political life.
