Dr. Hamzeh’s Latest Book Is Released
For 18 days in January 2011, millions of Egyptians protested and fought a brutal battle against state police demanding social justice, freedom and dignity. On Feb. 11, Egyptians celebrated the removal of a 30-year-old dictatorship supported by the United States. However, as protestors began to leave the public squares, counter-revolutionary state forces regrouped and forcefully began arresting and attacking protestors, including women.
New Mexico State University gender and sexuality studies professor, Manal Hamzeh, recently published her book, “Women Resisting Sexual Violence and the Egyptian Revolution: Arab Feminist Testimonies,” documenting and uplifting the testimonios, shahadat in Arabic, of women protesters who faced intense backlash from Egypt’s state authorities.
“This book is a journey of hours and hours of witnessing the details of Egyptian women’s experiences of state-sanctioned sexual violence that have forever changed me,” Hamzeh said.
