Egypt: Women demand equality in shaping new Egypt
Egyptian women were instrumental in the “25 January Revolution” that overthrew the repressive regime of President Hosni Mubarak in early 2011. Yet the hopes raised for women’s rights have not been fulfilled – and women are still being largely excluded from taking part in shaping their country’s future. It is crucial that the experiences, needs and views of women are integral to the process of change. Action needs to be taken now to ensure that women participate freely and in large numbers in the parliamentary elections scheduled for November 2011.
