'Woman in red' becomes symbol of Turkey protests

In her red cotton summer dress, necklace and white bag slung over her

shoulder she might have been floating across the lawn at a garden party;

but before her crouches a masked policeman firing teargas spray that

sends her long hair billowing upwards. Endlessly shared on social media

and replicated as a cartoon on posters and stickers, the image of the

woman in red has become the leitmotif for female protesters during days

of violent anti-government demonstrations in Istanbul.(Reuters)
