    Egypt epidemic of sexual violence

    yea back to the middle age……what the f..
    The Egyptian group Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment/Assault, which runs a hotline for victims of sexual assault and seeks to intervene to stop attacks, has received scores of reports of attacks on women in Tahrir Square over the past three days. The group confirmed 46 attacks on June 30, 17 on July 1, and 23 on July 2. The group’s volunteers intervened to protect and evacuate women in 31 cases of sexual assault. Four of the women needed medical assistance, including two who were evacuated by ambulance. The women’s rights group Nazra for Feminist Studies had confirmed another five attacks on June 28.
    One woman required surgery after being raped with a “sharp object,” volunteers with the group said. In other cases, women were beaten with metal chains, sticks, and chairs, and attacked with knives. In some cases they were assaulted for as long as 45 minutes before they were able to escape.[QUOTE]

    Egypt crisis: '100 women sexually assaulted in Cairo's Tahrir Square' - Telegraph

    Egypt crisis: '100 women sexually assaulted in Cairo's Tahrir Square'


    Close to 100 women have fallen victim to "rampant" sexual attacks in Cairo's Tahrir Square during four days of protests against Egypt's Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday.

    "Mobs sexually assaulted and in some cases raped at least 91 women in Tahrir Square ... amid a climate of impunity," HRW, which is based in New York, said in a statement.
    It cited figures from the Egyptian Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment/Assault, which runs a hotline for victims of sexual assault, showing that there were 46 such attacks against women on Sunday, 17 on Monday and 23 on Tuesday.
    Another women's rights group, Nazra for Feminist Studies, reported that there were another five attacks on Friday, said HRW.
    The watchdog called on Egyptian officials and political leaders "across the spectrum to condemn and take immediate steps to address the horrific levels of sexual violence" in the iconic square.
    "The rampant sexual attacks during the Tahrir Square protests highlight the failure of the government and all political parties to face up to the violence that women in Egypt experience on a daily basis in public spaces," said Joe Stork, HRW's deputy Middle East director.


    "These are serious crimes that are holding women back from participating fully in the public life of Egypt at a critical point in the country's development."
    Several women required surgical intervention after the attacks, some were "beaten with metal chains, sticks, and chairs, and attacked with knives," HRW said.
    The government response has been to "downplay the extent of the problem or to seek to address it through legislative reform alone," whereas what is needed is for attackers to be brought to justice, HRW said.
    Some say the attacks are staged by thugs who are abusing a security vacuum and confident of escaping prosecution.
    Others say the assaults are organised to scare women off from joining protests and to stain the image of the anti-government demonstrations.

    It's like a durum. The best of it is inside.
    Stress is when you wake up screaming realizing you weren't sleeping.
