  • “During Mubarak’s time women were only mentioned to decorate the regime. Under the Muslim Brotherhood, laws were made for early marriage for girls and genital mutilation.”
  • “Don’t let Egypt turn into another Syria, Libya, Yemen, work with individuals on the ground especially women and minorities…Find a way to understand what the people really want.”
