Publicity for Lubna Hussein

A Sudanese woman, Lubna Hussein, has printed 500 invitation cards and sent out emails, saying she wanted as many people as possible to attend her court hearing on in Khartoum today.

“It is important that people know what is happening,” she says.

According to the BBC, the UN worker is facing a sentence of 40 lashes and a fine for… wearing trousers.

Ten other women who were arrested for the same offense have already been lashed.

Ms Hussein wants publicity for the ordeal she is facing, so I think it is our duty to help her get it.
