Another post about Egypt! This time about a women-only audio blogging station where women can talk about street harassment. Via Al Arabiya News Channel:
“A women-only audio blogging station has become one of Egypt’s most popular censorship-free forums for women intent on tackling taboo issues of gender inequality and street harassment…
Launched nine months ago by Amani Tunsi, 25-year-old computer science graduate, the blog offers young Egyptian women public space to tell their stories, share pictures and vent about daily frustrations without risking their identity.
It also offers a show called Mosh Kol al-Teir (Not all the Birds) that probes the different harassment methods and tricks guys use to pick up girls.
Bloggers have been at the forefront of the movement against sexual harassment, pioneering coverage of sexual aggression against women and leading campaigns like Kulna Laila (We are all Laila) to raise awareness and create solidarity among women bloggers.”
Ah, here is another example of the power of the Internet to help women share their stories and work for their rights. Use your Internet access to share your street harassment stories on this blog & raise awareness of the problem globally. Submit to: stopstreetharassmentATyahooDOTcom.
