Thousands of women crowd the streets of Yemen's capital.
The demonstration comes a day after a 52-year-old woman was reportedly killed by security forces in the south.
The women are calling for embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh to end the violence by stepping down.
[Fatmah Al Hakim, Young Woman Protester]:
"We say to them: 'This is enough. This regime has got to go. We want to build a new Yemen.'"
Security forces, including snipers, fired on protesters here on Sunday, killing at least five people.
Renewed violence has raised the death toll to 20 in the last few days alone.
