Yemen women protest against degrading comments by Saleh

In a brief speech to followers on Friday in Yemen, President Saleh requested men and women to stop mingling with those of no direct relation, in order to keep with cultural norms, Voice Of America News said.

Originally advised to stay at home, women continue to go against Islamic law after the verbal attack and degrading by their ruler, according to CNN International.

Saleh met with women leaders to explain the misunderstanding of the "encouragement, care, and support provided by the president to women in the country," CNN International said.

Mohammad Sabri commented on the lack of respect by the regime for the rights of expression. It appears that they want women to be lead by men at all times, according to CNN International.
