Smashing another myth again!

The Sunday New York Times published an article on October 11th entitled, "In Belarus, Women Led the Protests and Shattered Stereotypes," which points out how women are changing the face of politics, creating new norms and shattering deeply entrenched gender stereotypes built up over generations.
