Egypt's women have had enough of being told to cover up | Mariz Tadros | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

The Guardian are talking about women covering up and the sexual harrasment in Egypt. On a recent shopping trip to Cairo from the Red Sea Coast and specifically City Stars to buy some cotton long sleeved tops for the hot summer months I was surprised to find that nearly every shop for ladies fashion is full of man-made fibres and the skimpiest of styles. Yet, despite being packed full of shoppers in the evenings, and spending two full days of shopping, we only saw a handful of foreign faces. I resorted to finding my cotton tops in the Khan El Khalali bazaar shops on the top floor.

So who buys all these expensive, European style clothes? I appreciate when the Egyptian ladies are at home they dress differently but surely not enough to keep City Stars in profit?
