AM - 18/11/2014: Nairobi women protest public shaming of women for their dress

A disturbing trend - the public stripping and humiliating of women - appears to be on the rise in sub Saharan Africa. There have been recent attacks in South Africa, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Last week a woman in the Kenyan Capital Nairobi was attacked for wearing a mini-skirt and a singlet. Since the attack Nairobi women have mobilised, organising a protest march that brought the capital's centre to a standstill.
