Meet Alaa Salah, the 22 Year old lady, who Started a Protest that Removed the Sudanese President

Gistainment 1d

The people of Sudan were subjected to 30 years of misrule and dictatorship under the rulership of president Omar al-Bashir. Women were the worst hit in that regime as various laws were targeted on them.

Women had a good reason to protest. During Bashir Islamist regime, they were the particular target for so called public order rules. Under the guise of prohibiting immoral and indecent acts, they could be arrested and flogged for wearing trousers or knee length skirts, smoking or simply behaving improperly. Humans rights estimates that thousands of women were charged each year.

Under president Omar Bashir government, 25% of the seats in parliament were reserved for women, but no woman was allowed to serve in his cabinet that is no woman served as minister.

Alaa Salah, 22 year old student studying architectural engineering volunteered herself and standing on top of a vehicle initiated a protest with other ladies filming her that led to the removal of the president. Her image on top of a vehicle sent across through the social media spurred other citizens to join in a protest that paralyzed activities in the country until Omar al-Bashir, the president was forced to resign.

For this singular action, Alaa Salah became the lady of liberty in Sudan and a national hero, she became a world figure and has visited many nations including the United Nations for this act of bravity and patriotism.
