Philippines - Quezon City - La marche des sous-vêtements contre les statistiques économiques

Women aged 16 to 60 gathered yesterday at Tomas Morato avenue in Quezon City (...) Shouting slogans like "Sa maghapong trabaho at paggawa, kahit pambili ng panty ay wala," the women from urban poor communities disputed President Arroyo’s claims of economic recovery.
"These panties symbolize the inner self of a woman. These are our protection. When you remove these panties, you also strip us of our protection," said Tess Borgoños, chairwoman of the Mangagagawang Kababaihan Mithi ay Paglaya.
