EGYPT: Drop Charges of Human Rights Defender - EMAIL ACTION

Amnesty International, USA, Jan. 25, 2018.

Azza Soliman is a lawyer and activist who has been fighting for the basic rights of women in Egypt for over 30 years.

The right not be harassed at work. Not to be beaten. Not to be raped. Rights that we sometimes take for granted here at home.

Betrayed by her own country, she now faces a lengthy prison sentence because the Egyptian government apparently don’t think women should be protected from these horrors.
