Mona Eltahawy regularly appears on US television and in newspapers to discuss regional issues. During last year’s Egyptian revolution, Eltahawy was assaulted in the Interior Ministry. “When a woman who took part wrote to tell me I’d helped to inspire the march because I’d spoken out on Egyptian TV about my beating and assault, I was finally able to cry. They were the tears of a survivor, not a victim,” she said.
