    Lebanese anti-political establishment protesters have been calling for an end to the sectarian power-sharing system, which they blame for corruption and mismanagement.

    Women too are fighting to change that system they say has been unjust to them.

    Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports from Beirut, where the protest movement has given them a new platform to raise their voices against sectarian politics, harassment and sexual assaults.
