Women's News October 26, 2010

There is a history of sexual harassment in Cairo, and now women are taking things into their own hands.  A website called Harassmap is starting up.  Women will be able to go online or text information on areas of the city where they are being harassed.  This will help other women to avoid certain areas and may even highlight areas of severe harassment.

A Yemeni man tried to rape a woman in her apartment in the Abb province of Yemen.  Neighbors heard her screaming and began breaking down the door, at which point she got control of the rapist's gun and shot him in the head.  Good riddance.
