Egypt is no stranger to misogyny, sexism, and harassment. Yet, it is always baffles us when we hear religious people excusing the outrageous behavior.
Islamic preacher, Sherif Shehata, was a guest on the show “Garab Hawaa” on LTC TV and shared his surprising opinion regarding women’s clothes and men’s reaction to it. Apparently, Shehata believes that harassment is a symptom, not a cause, where the origin is the women’s actions. The so-called preacher claimed that men have lust and if short skirts exist and men don’t react, then their manhood would be questioned.
This is beyond disgusting and outrageous. This man is giving harassers an excuse for what is considered a crime in other countries. Last time we checked, women could be completely covered in public and still get harassed.
WE SAID THIS: IT IS TIME THAT PUBLIC FIGURES REALIZE HOW DAMAGING THEIR IGNORANCE CAN BE???
