The horrific events in Tahrir Square provoked strong reactions, with many women taking to the streets to demand change. The film portrays a startling account of a society permeated by misogyny.

This is a personal documentary, based on director Samaher Alqadi’s own experiences and what choices she herself makes to bring this problem to light. She will not back down to harassment and threats. With her camera as a weapon, Alqadi captures the fight first hand, documenting the harassment and patriarchal attitudes that she and other Egyptian women encounter in daily life.
