Egypt's Women Fight Back

From Foreign Policy Magazine. Sorry, one of my passions seems to be women's rights and if that means bringing light into a world that hasn't had women's lib yet and I'm going against the grain then so be it.

Just because a women dresses conservatively doesn't mean she's asking for it. If a women dresses less conservatively it still doesn't mean she's asking for it and it doesn't give the men any more rights to anything. Men in Arab countries need to take responsibility for their actions. Act like men and not animals.

I know how deep this goes in Egyptian society and it's pervasive. I had to work with my husband on it for a decade and he's a moderate. It's possible but it takes commitment, persistence and time.
