The president of the Lebanon Marathon is urging Lebanese women to run forward not backward. This is a marathon reserved fro women. Changing society through sports, it's about women empowerment...in Lebanon and in the larger Arab world. Give women a chance is what I hear Mai is saying.
The 10 K is the competition, and 5 K is open for everyone men and kids can take part of it. No domestic violence, equality, no discrimination and also in Lebanon women should be able to give their citizenship to their spouses. This is a big event where about 104 countries are represented and three dozen NGOs support it. Sure thing these women celebrities do not shy away.
