For women and girls in Egypt, sexual assault has long been endemic - but victims are now fighting back like never before, writes Salma El-Wardany. Every woman I know in Egypt has a story of sexual harassment, assault or rape. It has become part of everyday life in a country where for women picking an outfit is less about style, and more about protection. Over the years, a culture of patriarchy, religion and conservatism has meant women often stay silent when sexual abuse happens because victim-blaming is all too common. Now though, women and girls are finally breaking decades of silence, taking to social media to share their stories of assault, empower one another and call for justice.

Victims of sexual abuse in Egypt are to get anonymity after a high-profile case that saw scores of women use social media to accuse a male student of multiple assaults. Under the proposals, victims' identities could only be revealed to a court and to defendants upon request. However women often fear that if they file complaints they themselves will be blamed. On Wednesday the Egyptian cabinet approved the anonymity bill, local media reported. The current attention to the issue began with a rare social media campaign in which women revealed their experiences of alleged abuse. Last week an Instagram account called Assault Police was set up to publish allegations of rape, sexual harassment and blackmail by dozens of women against student Ahmed Bassam Zaki, who is reportedly from a wealthy family. Mr Zaki was subsequently arrested and on Monday Egypt's public prosecutor charged him with indecent assault against at least three women, including one who was a minor at the time.
