“A girl who walks in the street, with a tear on her jeans, at the thigh or her buttocks, you know what I think I think that harassing such a girl is a national duty, rape her is a national duty! “, it was interesting to say the Egyptian lawyer Nabih al-Wahsh in a televised debate, mid-October, on the set of the channel Al-Assema. Statement that has not stopped provoking reactions of outrage on the web. Like that of the Egyptian activist Mona El-Tahawy who publishes on twitter that “Television in Egypt promotes the culture of rape”.

As for Maya Morsi, the president of the National Council for Women in Egypt, she strongly condemned the words of the lawyer, calling them a blatant appeal to rape women.

The lawyer’s remarks are all the more shocking since in a UN report published in 2013, 99.3% of Egyptian women surveyed said they had already experienced some form of harassment.
