Here's an unbelievable number: 99 percent of women in Egypt have been sexually harassed.

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.

Women wearing head scarves has never been a problem.

Women wearing head scarves because they feel a necessity to protect themselves from unruly male behavior is a problem.

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.
