Women and Gender in the Egyptian Revolution

By Dr. Nancy Gallagher


For the 18 days of the 25 of January 2011 Egyptian Revolution, women and men of widely divergent backgrounds stood united in calling for social justice and an end to political oppression. Many people said they felt reborn and believed they were witnessing dawn of a new Egypt. In the post-revolutionary era, however, sexual harassment increased dramatically and became increasingly violent, particularly in the Tahrir Square area. This talk will discuss ways that survivors, perpetrators, social scientists, journalists, activists, and filmmakers have attempted to understand this unhappy turn of events and what is being done about it.


Nancy Gallagher: Nancy Gallagher is a research professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She is currently the University of California Education Abroad Program's Study Center Director for the Middle East.  She taught courses on women and gender in the Egyptian Revolution at the American University in Cairo where she also participated in the University on the Square Project documenting the revolution through the collection of oral interviews. She was based in Cairo from 2011 to 2013 and expects to return in 2014.
