Safe Tahrir for Women #EndSH

A group of Egyptians feminists created an event on Friday July 6th to say "Enough, No!" to the terrible assaults against women which have been happening in Tahrir. They believe that the thugs have been carried out by state-sponsored paid thugs: let's catch them, and prove that the people of Tahrir are amongst the noblest in the world.


Amanda Ismail Zohdy the creator of the event wrote on the event's page on FB "Please read this terrible story, and imagine if this happened to your mother, daughter, sister, wife or friend there are many reports of similar attacks"

Amanda said "we want to set up a Safe Point in the square where women can join the revolutionary protest, and set up escorts to take women safely in and out of the square to the Safe Point. We want to spray paint and handcuff any thug who touches a woman, so he can be exposed and shamed for behaving like a dog. We're asking every political group and each individual, as a human being: please help.


Some Egyptian youth attended the event in solidarity and to guard it.
