Video: Egyptian protesters demand end to sexual harassment
Protesters took to the streets of Cairo on Saturday to call for more protections against sexual harassment which is seen as a critical problem the country.
The marchers’ demands included stricter punishment for sexual offenders, and an end to sexual violence as well as discrimination against women.
The protest was sparked by the uploading of a recent video on YouTube which showed a mob of men surrounding a 19-year-old woman and gang raping her in Tahir Square where crowds had gathered to celebrate the election of the President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi earlier this month.
The protest movement is being spearheaded by Deena al-Shabba a student who set up the "Walk like an Egyptian Woman" campaign in response to the video.
