Women march against sexual harassment

 

Egypt Indépendant:

Shura Council’s human rights committee members said on Monday that women taking part in protests bear the responsibility of being sexually harassed, describing what happens in some demonstrators’ tents as “prostitution.”

Major General Adel Afify, member of the committee representing the Salafi Asala Party, criticized female protesters, saying that they “know they are among thugs. They should protect themselves before requesting that the Interior Ministry does so. By getting herself involved in such circumstances, the woman has 100 percent responsibility.”

During the committee meeting on Monday, Afify called for penalizing children, even if it does not conform to international charters to which Egypt is signatory, and criticized foreign-funded organizations, which adopt western thought, he said.

Salah Abdel Salam, a member representing the Salafi Nour Party, said that as long as women protest in places full of thugs, they should take responsibility for the harassment they face.

    NO!!!….Women and Men should be able to protest without fear of being harrased-asaulted-raped-hindered in any way,the people in charge are not doing their job properly if come out with a statement such as this,they give the “green light” to all preditors,and sends the them the freedom of prosecution message,this just shows you that they know they are a Nation of Animals led by Animals.
