Egyptians protest against sexual violence

Thousands march against increasing instances of sexual harassment of female protesters.

Thousands of men and women have marched in Egypt against the sexual harrassment of female protesters.

More than 20 women were sexually assaulted last month during the second anniversary of the so-called “Arab Spring” protests that led to the downfall of Hosni Mubarak, former president.

But sexual violence is nothing new in Egypt, one study estimates that more than 80 percent of women have experienced it at least once.
