CBS News chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan is not the only female to have made news for being attacked in Tahrir Square.

As women celebrated International Women’s Day in Cairo on Tuesday, men verbally, physically, and sexually assaulted them for attempting to spread the message of equality. These women marched together in protest of sexual assault and sexism only to be shoved and abused by dissenting thinkers.

Check out the tweets from the latest Tahrir Square protest onlookers and assaulted women.
