Egypt's harassed women need own revolution

Several months before Egypt's revolution, CNN producer and camerawoman Mary Rogers wrote a piece for CNN.com on the sexual harassment of women in Cairo.

News of the attack on CBS reporter Lara Logan, as well as other sexual assaults against women during Egypt's uprising, show that attacks against women have not gone away.

Read Rogers' updated account of sexual harassment in Egypt, including what she and other colleagues faced during the past few weeks.

    @chrissy: what good have u done with your life that makes you a better citizen in this country? I am grateful to have had the opportunity to inspire, motivate, and rescue many americans without asking for the taxpayer's dollar, or making news of my moral obligations. Without going to harvard university, i was once proud to have people from there volunteered to protect those who followed me to voice their supports for justice. My community honours my works even in my absence, and other community memebers respect me. I am a christian, a global citizen, and an advocate. What have u done for us, justifying W.H's injustice? The united States is a sad country for have people like u who think those of us praying for her best are her enemy. You make the fed think it's our idea for all the blood on our hand, including the violtion of human rights in africa and in the mideast! Make yourself useful, my friend, justice is our right. The fed don't care about you and I.

    they don't care about this country either. Their only thirst is a dollar from the lobyist wearing $1500 suit! So, before you send me away, ask yourself what's my crime! My education comes from life. I didn't need your taxpayer' dollar for that. In contrast, i pay the taxes to the fed.
