Within its yearly participation in the occasion of the 16 Days Campaign Against Gender-Based Violence; in 2020, Nazra for Feminist Studies, as part of this international campaign, will re-highlight the lives and experiences of those who chose to combat this violence by shedding light on the feminist awareness development of some Egyptian women.
From November, 25th, 2020 till December, 10th, 2020, Nazra will focus on documenting the journey of young feminists from the personal to the public sphere and their awareness development throughout the years.
The documentation will be based on Nazra’s publication "Why We Became Feminists?”
This campaign comes to emphasize that the Egyptian feminist movement throughout its history was created by the struggles of Egyptian women. The women who faced various challenges and crossed by their lives journeys into a tangible development that contributed not only to their personal lives but also imprinted on the reality of an entire society that is suffering from multiple forms of violence against its women.
