Sexual violence against women is widespread in Egypt. Many women experience sexual harassment on a daily basis. What is being done to protect women?

Despite their involvement in the Arab Spring, Egypt’s women reaped no benefits. Given the advances of Islamism and the entrenchment of the old state they have little or no chance of a self-determined life in terms of politics and sexuality, modernity and tradition. British-Egyptian journalist Natasha Wheatley embarks on her own personal journey through the land of the Nile. Natasha Wheatley delves deep into Egyptian society, where worlds collide and disputes over gender roles often divide entire families. In this social climate, people have trouble conducting relationships, while sexual harassment is an aspect of everyday life. To protect themselves, some Egyptian women have set up the platform "HarassMap", where they post reports whenever they are attacked. Hence the map of Cairo features countless big and small red dots that show which districts are especially dangerous for women.
