Marching with Dignity – “Sisters” or Not

 ere on MMW, I tried to highlight the fact that mainstream media was focusing on Islamists’ statements regarding what women wear, while, in fact, what was even more dangerous was their vision regarding women and child law. I referred in that article to quotations from Dr. Manal Abul-Hassan about allowing female genital mutilation, and to Abul-Hassan’s description of child protection laws as simply an imitation of the West (and therefore bad or unnecessary).

Turns that Dr. Abul-Hassan, media professor in October 6th University in Cairo, has even more to say about Egyptian women.
