    This video shows what it’s like for a girl to walk alone in Cairo, no matter what time of day. Though the video only includes stares, it gives an idea of just how intimidating it can be in the street. As a woman, Egyptian or foreign, comments and stares are the norm every time we step out the door, no matter what we’re wearing.

    We decided to pair this video with the song "A3akes Ah At7rash La2" by Sadat & Fifty, translating to "Flirting yes, Harassment No". The song talks about the problem of sexual harassment in Egypt, using the popular Electro Sh3abi music style.

    While we are critical of harassers in the streets of Egypt, this problem is by no means an Egyptian issue alone, sexual harassment happens worldwide, on varying scales. This is why this video is going so viral, because so many people worldwide connect with the issue. Unfortunately Egypt just happens to be one of the most affected countries. This behavior is not inherently Egyptian or Arab. This behavior is that of people in a patriarchal society.

    Due to some racist and hateful comments that were posted below, we have decided to remove said comments and close the comments section. Thank you for your understanding.
