The invincible women of Bahrain

The invincible spirit of the women of Bahrain: here women protestors flash the victory sign as they face a barrage of tear gas from riot cops. Protestors were marching in the town of Abu Saiba on Monday in solidarity with political prisoners. In early January, a verdict is expected in the trial of 13 democracy leaders jailed last year for political activity. Our fullest respect & solidarity with the movement in Bahrain. They have been in the streets for nearly two years & are a beacon to suffering humanity everywhere as a model of intransigence & courage. (Photo by Mohammed Al-Shaikh/AFP/Getty Images)
