Commission Sponsors Seminar, “Making Egypt’s Streets Safer for Everyone”

 In Uncategorized

On October 12 American Fulbrighters gathered at the Villa for a seminar on “Making Egypt’s Streets Safer for Everyone: campaign against sexual harassment.” The seminar, which was hosted by the Commission’s Cultural and Educational Program, featured a presentation by Ms. Engy Ghozlan, Project Coordinator for the campaign against sexual harassment, “Safe Streets for All.” The campaign was initiated in 2005 by the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights.

The speaker “handled questions very well,” said one Fulbrighter, and the points raised “were very illuminating to the discussion at hand.” “I would like to thank the Commission for acknowledging harassment as an issue,” commented another, and a third grantee said that it was “very interesting to hear more Egyptian opinions on the issues and changes in the Egyptian Society.” The Commission’s Cultural and Educational Program sponsors site visits, lectures, and other activities to help its American grantees understand Egypt and its culture.
