October 5, 2014. Cairo, Egypt. The harasser has been brought to a police truck nearby. A new anti sexual harassment law and a call on the Egyptian authorities to ensure its enforcement were made in June 2014. The law defines "sexual harassment" for the first time in Egypt's history. However the police will often try to dissuade women to file a complaint. In a worst case scenario, policemen themselves may abuse women, as reported in May 2015 by the FIDH.
