Women through Egyptian uprising

This article explains how women experienced their lives through the uprisings in Egypt. I quickly note how women are not given and often do not have the possibilities to establish media platforms to speak out on their own experiences, beliefs and trajectories for social, political and economic life in Egypt. With so much going on through the streets of Egypt women are quickly left to stand at the sides and not have the possibilities to share their perspectives. Violence and constant marches are what prohibits women to be on the streets. In the cases where women are not able to participate due to family reasons forces them to be left out even greater.

Women's works to bring their rights forward have established strong platform to work from for the greater of young women growing up.
