Sudanese Women Rally Against Oppression

On Monday, the Initiative of No Oppression Against Women organised a rally in Omdurman to commemorate the December revolution, celebrate the 16-day campaign against violence against women, and the International Day for Human Rights.

The rally started from the residence of Fatima Ahmed Ibrahim in El Abasiya, who was the first woman member of parliament in Sudan, who died at the age of 88.

The rally was led by women riding horses from Ibrahim’s house to the National Theatre in Omdurman. The participants were enthusiastically chanting and raising slogans calling for the promotion of women’s rights.
