Egypt: Women Initiatives Take Part in Tahrir Sit-in

Three women initiatives have announced their taking part in Tahrir's ongoing sit-in and Friday's protest against President Mohamed Mursi's recent constitutional decree.

Fouada Watch, "I Saw Harassment" and "Your Constitution is Void" have called on people to rally in squares against Mursi's decree, insisting that peaceful demonstration is a legitimate right.

Meanwhile, a group of activists who do not belong to any one political force have organized groups to catch harassers in tomorrow's protest in an attempt to curb sexual harassment.
