Show man and women dating in egypt
As a blonde, visibly foreign individual, my life as a woman in Egypt has been challenging in a way no other country could be.
The blatant sexual harassment and a lack of equality opened my eyes to the work that still needs to be done in Egypt to become a comfortable living space for women.
My lack of veil is an eye-catcher on the metro, even on the women's compartment.
It's the reality of being a woman in Egypt, the country I've called home for the past 10 months.With men being the superior gender in all aspects of life, Egyptian women often face suppression, violence and injustice.This is a country in which 92 percent of females have had to endure female genital mutilation and is considered to be “the worst Arab state for women.”As a foreign visitor in this country, I am spared from family pressures to marry a man I've never met and feeling the need to hide my hair underneath a head scarf.On the Cairo metro, the daily mode of transportation for over 4 million Egyptians, the number is much higher.In other parts of the city, close to no females cover up.
