Egyptian women problems

Egyptian men, Egyptian women, rights of women, Arab men and Egyptian, The new EgyptianEgyptian women face many problems; the most common problems are the Excision and divorce:
Excision is a problem to be sure, but we must go through this? I think generally limited to the villagers and the urban poor. I do not know any families that I was either tied or any of our friends said it was still a reasonable idea .
Divorce has become very common in Cairo while divorced women are
still quite disapproved , are not a rarity. Similarly,
there is a presumption that the younger women marry , it is surprising how many parents are confused in their career-oriented that seem to have no interest in marriage girls. The fact is that women represent only quandry for Egyptian men and are not very comfortable with them, or even women in general . But as an Egyptian woman spoke one day when a group of local women complain that the men who had to deal with or be married to : "When can we honestly say that we have raised our children to be different, then we have the right to complain. Most of us do not like the way our men sometimes behave Egypt but was responsible to teach them to respect the rights of women? "I think she's right , but as a young mother I can also attest to the fact that it is not always easy to get the results you want. You just have to keep working .

But now , the biggest challenge for Egyptian women participating in public life may be the perception of safety and respect. Before the revolution , 76 percent said they felt safe walking alone in the streets at night . After the revolution , only about 57 percent think that way . Among women who said they felt safe walking , only 37 percent say they are not afraid to express their opinions openly . Among women who said they did not feel safe walking alone at night, 45 percent say they are afraid to express their opinions openly . It is important to note that these figures , despite the fact that there has been an increase in reported crime in all Arab countries except Tunisia.
Despite teaching conditions , including the proportion of years of schooling for women in years of schooling of men, have significantly improved the participation of Arab women in the labor market and the policy remains the lowest worldwide. The participation rate of women in Arab countries was moving slowly at a rate of snail 0.17 percent since the 1970s. In addition, the low rate of participation in the government doubles the capacity of women to influence and shape public policy . Across the region , women held 9 percent of parliamentary seats , which is the lowest of all regions and below the world average of 10 percentage points.
Despite this reality , women and especially Arab men and Egyptian believe that women should have the same rights as men . In Egypt , 86 percent of women believe that if 79 percent of men agree . A statistical association , 88 percent of Egyptian men and 89 percent of Egyptian women believe that children should have equal access to education. Despite this, women in Arab countries are generally children behind in basic literacy rate and women are 20 percent more likely than men to have no formal education . The Gallup poll showed support for legal equality of men and women the right to hold employment was positively correlated with the level of life satisfaction , employment and other measures of economic and social development. More men support women's participation in the workforce , women are more likely to hold professional jobs .

Despite common religion is anathema to women's rights perception, this is not the case . In fact , the figures show the commitment to religion and women's rights are compatible. Most men and women want a certain level of influence of religion in law. Fifty percent of men want Sharia as the sole source of new legislation and 37 percent want Sharia as one of many sources of law. Interestingly, 44 percent of women want sharia as the only source , while an additional 38 percent as a source wants . Egyptian men and women expressed similar levels of support for the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party and the Salafist Nour party.

Ultimately , the study refutes many misconceptions about the priorities of the United States women. Contrary to popular belief , Egyptian women and Arab women in general are more concerned with equal opportunities at work and in achieving a high quality education . The academic debate about whether Egypt should be an Islamic state outweighed the need to provide for the family.
The new Egyptian government must be vigilant. Egyptians , men and women expect tangible improvements in the economy. Another thing could lead to his political demise
