Activists and women carry banners during a sit-in in front of Beirut's national museum, marking International Women's Day, March 8, 2012. Lebanese women held a sit-in, demanding to stop discrimination and violence against women in Lebanon, and asking for equality and citizenship rights for the children of Lebanese women married to foreign men. The banner (bottom) reads, " Do not deform the law amendment that protects women against domestic violence". REUTERS/Mohamed Azakir (LEBANON - Tags: ANNIVERSARY CIVIL UNREST POLITICS)
