Trouser-Wearing-Woman Challange the Law!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090804/od_nm/us_trousers_odd;_ylt=A2KIKvhC9...
Check it out here! Following LOGWELL's post about the FORMER UN reporter Lubna Hussein. (Do you think it is fair to give up a job to to get change and Justice?) She is back with a crowd of woman who supporting her in the challenge of "indecency laws" here: http://www.worldpulse.com/node/12031.

What happened as woman and men came outside the Khartoum court room where her trial was being held, shouting protests and change, supporting Lubna Hussein and all woman ho want to wear pants in public.

Police broke up the protesters by throwing tear gas at them, disbanding them, but the impact was made as support is strong as Lubna posed for picture wearing her green trousers, and inviting fellow journalist to dress outside capitol imposed dress codes.

All right for woman! Her court case is to be held all the way in September 7th.

I wonder where this will go? Let's follow the case and see!
