Egypt is the worst country in the Arab world to be a woman, according to a poll of gender experts which found high levels of sexual harassment and female genital mutilation as well as an increase in violence...
As a blonde, visibly foreign individual, my life as a woman in Egypt has been challenging in a way no other country could be. The blatant sexual harassment and a lack of equality opened my eyes to the work that still needs to be done in Egypt to become a comfortable living space for women. With men being the superior gender in all aspects of life, Egyptian women often face suppression, violence and injustice. The upper-class females are dressed in brand clothes, style their hair for everyone to see and party every weekend — casual encounters with men included. The upper class, however, is a tiny fraction of the population. The rest of Egyptians live differently.
But, Egypt! Travelling alone as a woman, however, is an unfathomable concept to most Egyptians, so you can expect to receive more attention than most women will be used to dealing with in their own country. This allowed me to ease into the destination in the comfort of a group before tackling it on my own. As a tall, blonde, decidedly un-Egyptian-looking woman, I was bracing for more hassle in Cairo.
Having struggled with the concept of religion from a very young age, her proclamation of atheism was not met with much open-mindedness. Her father also threatened to cut off funds for her college education. Sara now lies about sexual activity, alcohol consumption, and more.
