"Woman" and "#Egypt": The Silent Revolution for Women's Rights: Harassmap (Forthcoming)

Bernardi C (2017) "Woman" and "#Egypt": The Silent Revolution for Women's Rights: Harassmap (Forthcoming). In: Maestri E, Profanter A (ed.). Arab Women and Media in Changing Landscapes: Realities and Challenges, London: Palgrave Macmillan.

First paragraph: This chapter will address the case of HarassMap, an independent organization created in 2010 whose focus is to denounce and tackle cases of sexual harassment in Egypt. I will argue that HarassMap hides a complex reality by simultaneously being an organization and a crowdsourced map that allows personal stories to find visibility and sheds light on the social acceptance of sexual harassment.
