The Egyptian women fighting harassment
The issue of sexual harassment against women has been in the headlines again in Egypt after derogatory remarks were made to a female reporter by the country's Information Minister, Salah Abdul Maksoud.
A recent UN survey said that 99.3% of Egyptian women reported facing sexual harassment, with 60% said they had been touched inappropriately.
It is a problem that has increased over the years, but is the attitude of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood contributing to making an already bad situation for Egyptian women even worse?
