An artistic protest on one of Beirut’s famous seafronts has been staged this week for the cause of altering Lebanon’s law on rape.
A dozen Lebanese women, dressed as brides in white wedding dresses stained with fake blood and bandaging their eyes, knees and hands stand in front of the government building in downtown Beirut, Lebanon, Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2016. The activists are protesting a Lebanese law that allows a rapist to get away with his crime if he marries the survivor. The law, in place since the late 1940s, is currently reviewed in Lebanese parliament. Campaigners against the law are calling on lawmakers to repeal the law during their meeting Wednesday.
