"Fight for your Rights" means to be prepared to fight the Government for your rights... This includes physical altercation. Men literally paid in blood to earn their rights. Women were given rights because vagina. If women want to vote with the big boys, they also need to be prepared to roll with the punches. Protest inherently comes with the risk of violent response. With that in mind, I think if anyone brings a child (born or not) to a protest, they should be prosecuted for child endangerment.

She was trying to break free and trip the police according to Reuters... the video doesn't really show it, but if true... so what? Because it's a woman? This is such a non-story... the reason for the protest is a better story I bet.

I would sympathize if there is also outrage when men are brutalized like this. If not, I'll just consider this gender equality.

few weeks ago in France a woman got hit in the head by French police ... much much worse. No western media presented the video.

Well I've always been told that women are equal to men. I don't get outraged when a man gets punched so what's different here?

Equal rights and lefts. Fuck women. You want equal rights but then want to be treated with kid gloves anytime you decide its convenient. Also I love how all the articles are trying to convince the readers to be “outraged”.

much like in the US, if you comply with directions you don't get dragged, hit, shot etc. I don't know what was going on but she's obviously resisting.

It looks to me that she dropped her weight on them and possibly tried to trip one of the cops. The punch does seem to be a bit over the top for the circumstance. They probably should have restrained her. That being said, the "woman" part is an irrelevant piece of information meant to illicit outrage. "Police are brutal.... to a Wahmyn"
