That was an interesting photograph , mostly women and young ,but I do see some white haired men in the background ,their fathers likely . Still I'd be interested to see a little more panoramic image .Get a better view of the distribution age and gender of the protesters . At first I thought it might be ,just an image the journalist plucked out of the archives as they often do .One that seems so fit the event and place or thereabouts, who'll know the difference ? .But I'll grant this one because I don't know any better . Images are worth thousands of miss spelt words and this one is all too familiar . On the ground photographers will take a myriad of shots but only some are chosen .One may ask by whom ? and we may ask " Is this the face of those who desire for Shariah ? " and we do ,as a westerner myself I say "we do" Were led to believe that young muslim women are the ones who protest on their own behalf and we say " pull the other one ! " Here's the real face "Face This "
