In Sudan, 10 women were publicly whipped for wearing pants, which is a violation of the dress code imposed by Sudan's Islamic regime.
Another woman, who is facing 40 lashes for wearing trousers in public, is challenging what the government considers indecent.
She has immunity from the dress code because she has a United Nations job.
But she quit that job and is headed to court to fight the charges against her on behalf of all Sudanese women.
She has invited human rights workers and Western diplomats to the hearing for support.
