Egyptian Muslim Men Shocked That Democracy Might Mean Equality for Muslimas and Copts

Hot Air:

This wasn’t the only ominous confrontation today in Egypt: Crowds of Muslims and Coptic Christians ended up throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at each other after a protest over a church-burning over the weekend. I want to focus on the women’s protest, though, partly because of the location, partly because it’s International Women’s Day, and partly because I got to “watch” it happen, sort of, in real time this morning. (More on that below.) CNN is reporting what happened as a case of “shouting matches” between women in the Square demanding equal rights and men opposed to them, but things went waaaay beyond that.
Read the rest.

Allahpundit is correct to focus on the Muslimas methinks. They have a lot more sense in most cases than their male counterparts.
