Saturday Quote: Lina Abou-Habib

‘Women are omnipresent”, and “there are absolutely no incidents of sexual harassment inTahrir Square.

The international media captured and hailed the visible participation of women from all walks of life in the Egyptian revolution.

For a moment in history it seems, society transcended gender-based violence, prejudice, and discrimination against women.

For a moment in history, many women in Egypt experienced equality, collegial leadership, and all-out public and political participation. During that moment, their voices and action mattered’.
