A group of 40 Israeli women, the "Sisters in Israel," showed their support for young Egyptian blogger Aliaa Elmahdi by posing nude for a photograph. Their signs and banners in the group photo read "Show you are not afraid," "Love without limits," and "Homage to Aliaa Elmahdi. Sisters in Israel."
Elmahdi had already drawn the attention of millions by placing a naked photo of herself on her website. She said her provocative demonstration was to protest the oppression and limited freedom of women in Egypt.
