What Women Lost and What Egypt Lost

Egypt women in a protest against the draft of the constitution

Although there are not constitutional and legal restrictions on women’s political participation in the political parties, in the parliament, and in the government, the constitutional system and legal one have established the state of citizenship and equality in Egypt. However, there is a gap between the law of state and the law of customs and traditions in Egypt and the impact on women’s participation in public life.

In despite of women’s participation all squares in the revolution was noticed in Egypt and outside that the electoral result related to women on the parliamentary election did not reflect this role: the results are considered a disaster in the light of what is known as “the parliament of the revolution”.
