From the horse's mouth in Egypt

From Egypt:

"But now with the Muslim Brotherhood, I see women are treated like objects instead of actual human beings and I don't want to be a part of it, or a part of the 'covering it up' culture."

Many of those reporting harassment wear headscarves or even the niqab, which covers the face.

"It is clear that women in Egypt are facing extraordinary levels of sexual harassment."

These quotes are taken from a BBC article -Egypt minister's remarks fuel sexual harassment debate, By Aleem Maqbool
