Pictures from My Country: Women's Day Edition

Today, in honor of women's day, I share photographs of Yemeni women. Also, I want to point out that a women's march is taking place in Sana'a in support of peace. Sarah Jamal (who organized the march) writes: 
We are the civil peace makers and we the ones who protected it throughout Yemen's history .. Yemen only flourished during our reign and only knew of resolutions to tribal conflicts through us... On Women's International Day, in Yemen we [the women] lead the demand to civil peace without sectarian or regional conflicts... Let Yemen's women lead its peace...
Today, rather than looking at women as the inferior sex, we celebrate Yemeni women as queens.
