These Stories are a small part of the daily suffering and abuses against women in Egypt under the rule of the bloody military coup leaders
For the sake of Freedom and dignity, I risked myself, my family and my friends, who all gave their lives.
I took to the streets to bring forth a new future for my country, one where the dream of democratic rule became a reality. It was for that dream and only for that dream that I struggled.
The tanks of an oppressive regime came to crush that dream in the form of a bloody military coup in which thousands were slaughtered.
I stood steadfast in my non-violence against a coup perpetrated by a corrupt Army general backed by an even more corrupt Police captain.
I protested and shouted, “I want my freedom!!!”
The Army general ignored and silenced my so that no one could hear my call.
He closed off all the media outlets so no one could reach me..
I kept on shouting and protesting… so he surrounded my … and decided to finish me off
He murdered four women in the city of Mansoura … but I kept shouting.
He murdered 16 women inthe Rabia and Nahda Massacres, but his violence only strengthened my resolve.
Five months after the worst massacre in history, I did not stop protesting and demanding my rights.
They have slaughtered my children again…
They have murdered me the streets and squares…
They have tortured me in the dungeons of Police stations…
They have arrested me and sentenced me to decades of unlawful and inhuman imprisonment…
They have even attacked me in universities…
But all of that has not stopped or even intimidated me…
