Sexual harassment in Egypt
One of the most ridiculous pronouncements by the reactionary and racist Western media is that Egypt, for example, is a misogynist and sexist nation because 80% of women have experienced sexual harassment at some point in their lives.
Did they forget to report that 83% of American women have also been sexual harassed at some point in their lives?
Of course, they conveniently forgot that there is a longstanding and influential indigenous feminist movement in Egypt, which not only draws from Arab post-colonial feminism, but from Islam itself, which strongly condemns any disenfranchisement of women, as well as sexual harassment in the streets.
