Women are stopped in the streets, arrested without reason and raped in the prisons. When the rapes did not stop the population is flowing more and more to the EPLF to join the armed fight against the Ethiopians, the women were accepted in the EPLF, and quickly integrated to become effective as much as the men were. This also, helped created culture of respect and unity between men and women.
