WHILE IT’S NOT an excuse, it’s no wonder men and boys are completely clueless when it comes to how big of a deal female sexual harassment is. How many men do you know have been touched inappropriately by women? How many men do you know, who feel unsafe when traveling by themselves? How many men would be unable to fight off a woman, if suddenly attacked by one?
I often feel like the best way to help someone understand a culture, is by immersing them in it. This PSA, created by the UN Women’s Egypt Country Office, is a step forward in helping males understand what it’s like to be a woman in their community. It’s not fair to say that every man in Egypt behaves this way, but 90% is an unnervingly high statistic.
