Mai Atya, 27, a musician, poses for a photograph in Khartoum, Sudan, July 2, 2019. Atya said she was beaten during the raid by security services at a sit-in protest camp outside Khartoum's Defence Ministry on June 3, 2019. "My main objective like many others is that we believe there should be a change; a good change in a good direction. I was at the sit-in area during the raid. I heard gun shots and ran away but when I jumped over a fence a Rapid Support Force (RSF) soldier caught us," she said. "They kept beating us again and again ... they think women should stay at home." REUTERS/Umit Bektas SEARCH "SUDAN WOMEN" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
