Sudan: Women on the Front Line

by Sara Creta & Mehdi Meddeb

A few weeks after the fall of Omar al-Bachir, thousands of Sudanese gathered daily in front of the army headquarters to demand the establishment of a civil government, before being brutally dislodged by the military. Be they mothers, activists, teachers, students or musicians, the women who participate, with strength and determination, in this pacific revolt speak of how, after third year of oppression and humiliation, they found the courage and hope to continue to mobilize in favour of a democratic Sudan.
