Happy Day!

Nothing says "Happy International Women's Day" like a bunch of women whose husbands don't allow them to leave the house without head-to-toe coverings. And nothing says "celebration" like RIOTING in front of DA JOOS, apparently.

Boy, she looks really happy, doesn't she?

More "International Woman's Day" silliness following the break.
