In high heels, head scarves, Afghan women protest harassment

Reuters: In high heels and head scarves, a small band of Afghan women took to the streets of the country's capital, Kabul, on Thursday to protest harassment by men in public places. Carrying signs, that read "This street also belongs to me" and "We won't stand insults anymore" the 20 or so women — and some men marching in solidarity — protested being abused, groped and followed on the city's streets.
