Lebanese women’s active and impressive participation in the revolution has led to the wide use of “the revolution is female” as a new slogan. This article will try to explain why and how women have been able to appropriate the revolution, and whether men and women are asking for the same rights. The article will analyze gender in the revolution through insights from a piece of street art painted by two young artists. It will demonstrate that the revolution per se is not female; rather, it is the characteristics of Lebanon’s revolution that have put women’s faces at the fore.
