the time of day
December 7, 2011
Samira Ibrahim : 35 yrs old was forced to strip and have her virginity checked in front of officers and army police and chose not to avenge her dignity so she filed a lawsuit in front of the Egyptian law. No attention, no audience, no publicity, no one gave her the time of day.
Aliaa Elmahdy: 20 yrs old stripped naked and showed her body of her own free will so she caught the audience attention and the media. Around 3 million viewers saw her online picture and no less than 50 articles were written and several TV shows covered the news.
