Whistling against sexual violence

Above (Issue I/2019)

Women and men in Morocco protest against sexual assault with whistles. Following the alleged rape of a 17-year-old this summer, the hashtag #Masaktach ("I'm not keeping silent") was launched on social media, similar to #MeToo. # Masaktach is said to have mobilised nearly 20,000 people so far. Women's rights activists criticize courts for imposing symbolic punishments for sexual violence. Meanwhile there are scant refuges for victims of violence.
