Mona Eltahawy: Women will finish what Arab Spring started

In a striking cover article for Foreign Policy magazine, Egyptian-American writer Mona Eltahawy argues that women must finish the revolutions started by the Arab Spring.

Eltahawy tells the BBC's Katty Kay that post-Mubarak Egypt has not provided women with the basic freedoms that all Egyptians asked for during the revolution.

"Just as the populations who rose up demanding freedom and dignity, women are saying we demand it," Eltahawy said. "Because we can't wait until it's given to us."
