The women of Tahrir are part of the backbone of the revolution, but face the risk of violent sexual harassment on a daily basis.

Two articles that tell of the continued distress of badly-treated women in Tahrir, including foreign Arab American who was stripped of clothes and assaulted in Egypt’s Tahrir Square.

Heather still doesn’t know how she made it home on Wednesday night after being in Egypt’s Tahrir Square. The Arab-American arrived back at her Cairo flat without pants, having had them torn off downtown. She and her two roommates were victims of a mob attack by people in the iconic square on Wednesday, as protesters demonstrated against the military junta.

According to Heather, an Arab-American living in the Egyptian capital, she and her Swedish and Spanish roommates took to Tahrir as thousands were converging there to mark one-year since the ousting of former President Hosni Mubarak.

“They started fighting over who was going to do what,” Heather told Bikyamasr.com in an exclusive interview. She came forward after seeing the report on a foreign woman who was stripped naked and assaulted only hours after her own incident.

“My roommates and I fell to the ground when they attacked us. The people pulled our pants off even as we yelled and tried to fight,” she continued.

CAIRO – As thousands massed Cairo’s Tahrir Square marking the one-year anniversary of the Egyptian uprising that ousted former President Hosni Mubarak, men and women alike participated in rowdy mix celebrating freedom and protesting the continued rule of the military junta.

But as the sun set, the joy, determination and feelings of national unity gave way for Tahrir Square’s women to a more menacing atmosphere. And by nightfall, they had become the target of repeated cases of harassment and assault, according to women interviewed by The Media Line found.

Around 7:30 p.m., Heather, an Arab-American living in the city, and her two roommates were traversing the center of the main square. A group of men began harassing them and surrounded them on all sides, trapping them, she said, asking to be identified by her first name only.

“They started fighting over who was going to do what,” Heather told local Egyptian news site Bikyamasr.com in an exclusive interview. She came forward after seeing the report of a foreign woman who was stripped naked and assaulted only hours after her own assault.

“My roommates and I fell to the ground when they attacked us. The people pulled our pants off even as we yelled and tried to fight,” she recounted. She said the men physically assaulted her.

  1. The Islamist takeover of the Middle East is allowing the scum in those nations to hide their misogynist actions behind religious standards, the fact that the founder of this so called religion was a misogynist who insisted that women remain property for all eternity makes the rest of the men either help in the attacks or ignore them.

    Welcome to what is coming to the west if we don’t win this war.
