Sexual Harassment In Egypt

Series 3 Episode 20 - 31.07.2015

According to a 2013 United Nations study, a staggering 99.3% of the surveyed women admitted to having been sexually harassed in everyday life in Egypt. But despite the large amount of women who are affected, many do not report their experiences. Talking about street harassment is considered a taboo and many women feel ashamed and are even blamed for the assault. Meanwhile, many men deny it’s even a problem. Today we’ll be trying to get to the heart of why sexual harassment is such a widespread problem in Egypt and how can real change come about, not just on paper, but culturally too.
