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.

    TYPO: 🙂 Men standing by "watching it happen", are just as guilty as one's committing the harassment.

    Years ago, a serial mentally deficient killer was out on parole. He attacked a woman in a motel who had a traveling job. I heard the 911 call on the news. Caller said she was yelling as he was going to do bad stuff to her. When cops got there, she was dead. Shameful the caller didn't do more. I agree with Jeff to a degree.

    it's our (us) will these women and the family are abused. Infact, we pay trillions to have them abused while we take their wealths. Pacifism is better.
