Women In Egypt: Living Their Rights

by

In honor of International Women's Day, Egyptian women are returning to Tahir today for a "Million Woman March" to protest their near-exclusion - with just one woman named to a new Cabinet - from the new Egypt. More from Al Jazeera on the apparent return to the "default position" on gender roles.

“When the prime minister came to Tahrir to speak to the people, was he blind? Did he not see that half of the people filling the square were women?”- Nehad Abu El Komsan of the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights.
