Women Fighting Back: An Illustration

This photo was posted to Facebook by a "Revolutionary youth of Kafr al-Dawwar" site (Kafr al-Dawwar is an Egyptian city near Alexandria) and is pretty clearly Egyptian but that's all I really know as to the source: caption says he told her to go home because her head was "naked' and her face was revealed, and she responded by hitting him in the face with a shoe. Good for her anyway whoever and wherever she may be.
