Women of Egypt

Sara is a 24 year old lawyer and lives in Shobra. Wahida Ragab Ibrahim is a 44 year old housewife and lives in Shobra El-Kheima. We asked them how the revolution affected them and what their hopes for the future are. Two Egyptian women – two opinions.


They make up over half the population of Egypt. Their opinions are as diverse as their locations. They go to school. They work, either in a job or by taking care of their families.They are fierce in their beliefs. They differ in background and in levels of education. They proudly share one thing – they are the women of Egypt.

Sara is a 24 year old lawyer and lives in Shobra. Wahida Ragab Ibrahim is a 44 year old housewife and lives in Shobra El-Kheima. We asked them how the revolution affected them and what their hopes for the future are.

Two Egyptian women – two opinions.

Sara :
The revolution changed my life for the better. Before, we didn’t have anything to do with politics, we were uninformed and we never spoke about it.

The revolution changed that and now there is much better political awareness.

My aspirations for the future are to see freedom and social justice for all Egyptian people.

Wahida :
I feel that the country belongs to me now. I used to feel that it belonged to Mubarak and his sons, but now it feels like it’s mine.

Mubarak used to set off sectarian violence between the Muslims and Christians but now we all love each other. And with Morsi’s victory I know that the sacrifice of the blood of the martyrs did not go to waste. I only expect good things for the future. With Morsi as president, everything will be fine.
