Activists have created a Facebook page entitled “Noun al-Neswa,” which aims at breaking some social taboos related to women in Egypt through graffiti drawings.
The page is part of a youth initiative and will kick off in Cairo on 9 March, one year after the military performed virginity tests on female activists. The page described the drawings as “female graffiti.”
The page included graffiti drawings for several well-known Egyptian actresses.
One of them showed actress Shadia in a drawing with the writing “I opened the sluice,” which refers to one of her film roles. Another showed actress Soad Hosny with the words “Girl is Like Boy,” a famous song of hers.
