Sexual harassment was barely discussed in Egypt before 2006.

The Egyptian Center for Women's Rights sought to draw attention to it, but the public's response was that it was an American idea wrongly applied to Egyptian society.

I found that not only does prostitution seem to have expanded following the revolution, it appears to have settled into stark social and economic layers.

Local television stations broadcast live footage of soldiers firing assault rifles at the minaret.

A flurry of Arabic went back and forth between Ahmed and two other men before the story was eventually explained to me.

Ahmed had been dating a girl from rural Egypt who came to Cairo after the revolution to earn money to send to her family. And he quickly made it clear she floundered at the job: she was unable to demand payment and allowed men to do whatever they liked. Even worse, the girl had disappeared and Ahmed hadn't heard from her in months, until that morning on Facebook.

Typically acting under the protective cover of large gatherings, assailants encircle a woman while outer rings of men deter rescuers.

The attackers regularly pretend to be there to help the women, adding to the confusion.

Quite a few decades ago,during Worldwar 2 and for some time before.

You know by now that no one is safe from Cairo Scene. A man knows what he wants and goes after it no matter what and is strong minded and ambitious, with his career being the priority in his early twenties.

That started a conversation about prostitution in Cairo, which they all said had blossomed following the revolution.
