Women played a major role in the revolution that brought down Egypt's old government. But nearly two years on, many say they have seen little reward. In terms of physical security, activists say the plight of women is getting worse.
妇女在推翻埃及旧政权的革命中发挥了重大作用,但两年过去了,许多妇女称得到的回报甚少。活动人士称在人身安全方面,妇女的处境每况愈下。

Heba Morayef of Human Rights Watch, "There have been so many cases of mobbing, of sexual assault and recently also gang rape cases, and the response to that of course has been zero response from the government.”
人权观察组织的莫拉耶夫说,“聚众滋事和性侵案件很多,最近还出现了轮奸案,而政府对此无甚作为。”

Activists say efforts to get the government to help women have failed. Psychologist Farah Shash of the Nadim Center in Cairo works with victims of sexual violence.
活动人士称努力使政府帮助妇女的尝试已告失败,开罗Nadim中心的心理学家Farah Shash治疗过性侵受害者。

"Whenever we discuss women’s issues in the parliament or public debate, they would say it is not a priority, that we don’t believe that women protection and participation is a priority, with what is going on now with the revolution and the political system and so on,” Shash explains.
“无论何时在议会或公众辩论中提到妇女问题,考虑到目前革命和政治体系的变革,人们就会说这不是重点,他们不认为妇女保护和参与很重要。”

While women's rights were shaky under the old system, legal experts say the nation's new constitution, passed amid controversy last month, further erodes civil guarantees.
虽然妇女权利在旧体制下岌岌可危,法律专家称上月在争议中通过的埃及新宪法也进一步抹杀了民权保障。
