Egypt’s fashion scene ‘a lot more feminine’
Egypt is the birthplace of some of fashion’s most iconic designers, including Brigitte Bardot, Dolce & Lavalle and Brigitte Auberjonois.
And its now a fashion mecca for women.
However, it is a country where, like many other countries, it has struggled with issues around gender inequality.
Women are now the majority in almost all public posts in Egypt, but it is the gender imbalance that has sparked criticism.
The country’s new president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, has pledged to address issues such as sexual harassment, gender inequality and gender inequality in the workplace.
But the head of the country’s Women’s Commission has said the country still has a long way to go in tackling the issues around women’s rights.
“In Egypt, we’re not doing anything.
We don’t have a solution, we don’t believe in it,” Nabeel Abdel Hamid said, adding that “it’s the most important thing to do”.
But with a recent poll showing a majority of Egyptians are against the president’s plan to bring back the death penalty, some fear a return to the death pen could mean more violence against women.
“We are in a situation where we are in the beginning stages of the transition, where we’re making progress but there are still many issues,” Abdel Hamidi said.”If we don�t make some kind of change, then we will go back to the place where we were before the revolution.”
El-Sampo said Egypt was committed to bringing the death sentence back to life but stressed that it was not a solution for women’s issues.
“The only solution is for us to change the system, to make it a fair system, and then to make sure that people don’t go back there to commit crimes,” he said.
The president’s promise to bring the death capital punishment back to Egypt is seen as an attempt to boost the countrys popularity, with his first 100 days in office having been marred by a series of protests.
But many Egyptians remain skeptical of the president�s promise to reinstate the death law, which has been repealed in the past.
“I’m not sure it will happen, because we’re waiting for the Egyptian government to give us a clear statement.
We will see,” said Mohamed El-Shami, an economist at the Brookings Institution in Washington.
“The whole thing is so far away.”
The Egyptian constitution has been amended to allow for the death of convicted criminals, but a provision allows the president to impose the death penalties if he is not satisfied that the punishment is justified.
