Egypt: Will the Revolution Free Women From Sexual Harassment?

Tahrir square is the symbol of the Egyptian revolution; as the world watched it became the site of powerful demonstrations where thousands protested, united by fraternity and the desire for freedom. But the riots hid another truth: the habitual molestation of women who came to protest. Few dared to speak up for fear of putting their lives in danger.

Like Samira Ibrahim who was submitted to a “virginity test” by the armed forces or journalist Nadia Abu Magd who was publically attacked by dozens of men, women have been continuously enduring the brutality of sexual pressure. Egypt seems to be turning a blind eye to this shocking situation: 83% of Egyptian women claim that they are the victims of sexual harassment on a daily basis.

Why are women confronted with this violent harassment in Egypt? And will the revolution be able to put an end to it?
