    The campaign’s tagline reads: “Being a woman is not a way for humiliation or punishment.”

    On April 15, police paraded a convicted criminal through the city of Marivan dressed in traditional Kurdish women’s clothing. The campaign “Kurd Men for Equality” launched on Facebook in protest of this punishment.

    In response to the judge’s sentence, a local feminist organization, the “Marivan Womens’ Community”, held a protest. One hundred women took to the streets of Marivan in a campaign for gender equality. In solidarity with the women’s protest, men began to post photos of themselves in women’s clothing.

    Can we take a moment to talk about how awesome these guys are being?
