"Some 200 Tunisian women demonstrated Wednesday in downtown Tunis in defense of their rights, following the election victory of an Islamist party. Tunisia is known for some of the most progressive legislation in the Middle East regarding women's rights -- something many say is in danger after a moderate Islamist party took the most votes in the recent election."
