Hundreds of thousands of women took to the streets to participate in the Women’s March, a peaceful, stunning rebuke against new US president Donald Trump. Over 600 marches were held worldwide and more than two million people flooded the streets of US cities.

Muslim women were asked to send in their photographs and here we look at some of the most powerful images of women marching for their rights.

    Trying doing the same thing in Saudi Arabia. Strange thing is that many are Pakistani who oppose women rights and demand Sharia. Subcontinent Muslims partitioned the country when Congress said they will implement women rights. Recommend
