This report highlights the struggle of women human rights´ defenders in Egypt, after the revolution of 2011. It features a few examples of Egyptian women with different backgrounds, explaining their experiences, and reasons behind their involvement in the public sphere, and the Human Rights movement. With their own words, they tell us the way they face the particular problems present in the areas where they live, and their proposed solutions, that stem from their particular environment, not on the basis of theories, or institutional plans.
