At least 200 people have protested in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, after a group of men tore off a woman’s clothes for wearing a miniskirt.
The protesters chanted “Shame on you” and handed out flowers at a bus rank where the attack took place, the BBC’s Anne Soy reports from the scene.
At a rival demonstration, about 20 men chanted “Dress up. We don’t want this.”
Kenya is a conservative society, where activists complain that women’s rights are often violated, our reporter says.
A mother’s group, Kilimani Mums, organised the protest after a video of the attack went viral on social media last week.
