In Egypt, we remove the veil

28.11.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

Despite the repressive climate placed by the regime of Al-Sissi un Egypt,  the fever for change, which was evident 5 years ago at Tahrir square, has not disappeared, particularly among young Egyptians women whose number is growing and who are longing for the emancipation. These young women are equally manifesting a desire to end the patriarchal tutelage which often passes by removing the veil. Dina, Mariam and the others tell their story to Le Monde in this article. This feminine liberation movement is not limited to Egypt: it can be found in Tunisia and in Algeria.
