In the bustling streets of Cairo, overflowed with people hurrying to their work, life advances in hectic rhythms. Traffic congestion, noise and buses crammed with men and women--this is usual for a big city on its way to progress. But, underneath this cloak of normality, a particular type of crime thrives in the small-scale world of public transportation--so subtle and elusive to the untrained eye--that seems, practically, nonexistent. Women of all ages, regardless of their attire, are sexually objectified and abused on a daily basis, silently tolerating the perverted needs of male passengers. Under those circumstances, how can a woman defend herself from their assaults; shield herself against the anguish and the shame of the repeated harassment, when a nation's male population remains untouched by this obscenity?

Look here, Maher. I don't care about the sexual harassment, as long as I don't have a complaint.
