Zap Tharwat Tackles Social Acceptability of Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment, I don't really know where to start. It's just something that is bound to happen everyday to someone out there, or even myself every time I decide to leave the house, or just walk to the car. Unfortunately, sexual harassment stories are everywhere. If you haven't experienced it yourself, then at least you have witnessed it or heard about it. The first thing that came to my mind after watching Zap Tharwat's latest music video 'Meen El Sabab' is 'FINALLY! He said it'. This music video is just a loud scream to the social acceptance of sexual harassment, it says NO to women being quiet about sexual harassment and it perfectly transmits a factual sexual harassment experience any girl can face in her everyday life. The thing I love the most about this video, is how both Zap Tharwat and Singer Menna Hussein didn't portray the Egyptian girl as a victim, but rather brave, powerful and rebellious.

Let's just face it, sexual harassment isn't something unique to the Egyptian society. Us girls, need to put an end to this ourselves. Take action, speak up and never remain silent. Your body is your own property, the way you dress is your personal freedom and you should never be blamed for just being yourself. Thank you Zap Tharwat for being the voice of the voiceless.
