Women Cycle for Peace in Lebanon

From the Daily Star:
About 300 women from 30 different countries cycled through the Bekaa and Mount Lebanon Saturday with the message of promoting peace in the Middle East and empowering women in the region. The women were part of the Follow the Women Foundation, an international program that seeks to encourage peace and unity in the Middle East through peaceful actions. The program is in collaboration with the Women for Peace International foundation. Two of its main goals are to focus of the issues of Arab women and to guarantee the rights of Palestinian women.
