Egypt: Mobs Of Men Sexually Harass Group Of Women Protesting Sexual Harassment

So, how's that 'democracy' working out for you, ladies?

From Ahram.com via Gateway Pundit:

A mob of hundreds of men have assaulted women holding a march demanding an end to sexual harassment, with the attackers overwhelming the male guardians and groping and molesting several of the female marchers in Cairo's Tahrir Square.

From the ferocity of Friday's assault, some of the victims said it appeared to have been an organised attempt to drive women out of demonstrations and trample on the pro-democracy protest movement.

The attack follows smaller scale assaults on women this week in Tahrir, the epicenter of the uprising that forced Hosni Mubarak to step down last year.

In (un)related news, Bangladesh lashed a young Muslim girl to death. She was raped by a married man, but a local Imam decided she was at fault for looking so enticing in that burka.
