#MeToo in the Middle East: The women making a stand

published 1 week ago by France 24

This week, we bring you a special edition of the show, focusing on the #MeToo movement in the region. Firstly, we head to Iran where women have used social media to break their silence on sexual violence. We speak to one of the survivors who pioneered the online movement. Next, we see how people are increasingly speaking out against sexual violence and rape in Egypt. However, the women who raise their voices do so at their own risk.
