It is with dismay that we have heard about the escalating attacks on women protesters in Egypt’s Tahrir Square. In our opinion Egypt will never be free until women are free. We stand in solidarity with all our Egyptian sisters, and echo the call of the Egyptian Women’s Union for the Armed Forces to protect all Egyptians and to honour their commitment that they will not seek political power in this time of social upheaval. Read our full statement on the situation in Egypt at our MENA Agenda 1325 website.
