In Sudan, a woman who has been convicted of violating a law against wearing pants, says she's not going to pay her fine.
Lubna Hussein said she will serve a month-long prison term instead.
"I will not pay a penny," Hussein told The Associated Press after the ruling.
Even before the court ruled in her case, Hussein said she would refuse any fine. She also wore the same trousers that sparked her arrest to court.
"I won't pay, as a matter of principle," she said. "I would spend a month in jail. It is a chance to explore the conditions in jail."
The offense violated Sudan's public decency laws and her sentence could have included public flogging.
The 43-year-old journalist said she is challenging the law to bring international attention to the harsh treatment of women under Sharia law in Sudan.
Eight women were publicly flogged in 2003 after they had a picnic with male friends.
