In Egypt, sexual harassment is a serious problem, and one which more and more Egyptians are speaking out against. A protest was held in Cairo's Nasr City on July 4 by young Egyptians, both male and female, in order to send a message against harassment.
Since the revolution took place, Egyptians both online and offline have been standing up against sexual harassment and gender-based violence. In June a march against sexual harassment was attacked. Nevertheless, initiatives to combat harassment continue.
The aim of the July 4 protest was to take a stand against sexual harassment and to demand safe streets for all. Maged Tawfiles was there and took the following photos (all images reproduced with permission):
