As a tourist or as a citizen in Egypt, we hear daily about situations of women suffering a violent act on the streets, at work or even at home. Many Egyptian women are accusing the fact of being harassed by men and they feel powerless or they do not even mention this to anyone because they feel ashamed or because they were told to be silent and endure it. In a world were women were educated to endure the shame and to stay quiet because this is normal as a woman, we aim to change this mentality and help women defense themselves and expose their rights as human beings and to get them to have a word to say in the daily life, on the street or at home. We are also aware of a lot of cases of women suffering harassment or abuse who are looking for help, but there is no specific way of learning them how to help themselves so they would not depend on someone else in case of any danger. Starting from advices from professional psychologists, information about where to go in case of an abuse to report and to not be affraid to do this; then we will even provide self-defense classes from people specialized in this area. In the same time there is well known that the marriage is a event happening without to much psychological preparation so we are looking to provide some "marriage daily life instructions" for young women that will get married or the new wives. About how to socialize as being married from how to deal with daily family situations. We need this amount to make all these things happen!
