#FF @maitelsadany on #Egypt constitutional amendments. And invite her to speak at all hearings on Egypt. I am sick and fucking tired of seeing just Egyptian men speak about Sisi and his fascism. There are women in Egypt. There are Egyptian women who are experts on our country.
This is why I wrote my 2012 essay Why Do They Hate Us? & my 1st book Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution: as with almost every revolution, regardless of risks we women took, it would crystallize into one group of men fighting aother group of men.
And ICYMI, patriarchy being its universal self: one group of men fighting another group of men is an apt way of describing US election coverage: mentions of male candidates have been consistently higher than women & women candidates receive disproportionately negative coverage.
The headline should just read: We seem to be ignoring the women.
