LifestyleThe American University in Cairo Will Host “EHNA” the 2nd Conference on Sexual Harassment in Egypt

Sexual harassment in Egypt has become one of the major issues that we just can’t get over.

The students, in the American University in Cairo, will be hosting the second edition of their sexual harassment awareness campaign “Ehna” on December 10 and 11, from 10 am to 5:30 pm. The conference will be under the banner of “The Relation Between Our Roles in Society and Sexual Harassment” which I totally applaud them for.
