Egypt: Women of the Revolution

SLIDESHOW: The stories of 13 women deeply involved in Egypt's ongoing revolution.

Egypt: Women of the Revolution

CAIRO — In October 2011, I spoke to 13 Egyptian women about the media’s coverage of women’s involvement in the revolution and their own experiences during and after the fall of Mubarak. Their roles were varied, as were their experiences and reactions to the revolution, with some having actively joined the movement and others forced to do so by circumstance. All have much to say about how it has affected their lives, and how their experiences are similar to — and different from —those of other Egyptian women.
