Lara Logan Breaks Her Silence

With all the unrest going on in the Middle East, one tends to want to focus on the progressive nature of the protests. The fact that the younger generation want freedom and justice is exciting. However, incidents like the one that happened to Lara Logan, though cannot be used to generalize a nation, are certainly an indication of social ills within a culture.

A research study reports that 80% of Egyptian women and 93% of non-Egyptian women are yearly groped and sexually assaulted. Why is that? Is it because the culture is so closed and narrow-minded that men are hungry for the sex they cannot easily get? Or is it because they undermine women as sexual objects? It seems to be a combination of both.

Though some Egyptians, men and women, have come out and conveyed their sympathy and sorrow about what has happened to Lara Logan, the majority seem to be quiet about it. Some have even gone as far as saying that they do not want to talk about it in fear of tainting the name of the revolution.

But the Egyptian revolution is already tainted with this story and stories of other women who are daily assaulted within the streets of Cairo.

Let’s hope that the future will be brighter for Egyptian women and that more Egyptian men will rise to support them.
