Abstract

The article offers the author's insights on the article "Turning Gendered Politics of the Security State Inside Out: Charging the Police with Sexual Harassment in Egypt," by Paul Amar. She says that Amar's writings taught her on the important interlocking gendered policing realities that shapes Mubarak-dominated authoritarian state in Egypt. She states that sexual harassment is a concept which is vulnerable to malicious co-aptation. She also mentions that women will not be able to exercise full citizenship if they feel unsecured in their workplaces. She adds that this conclusion has motivated many feminist activists to link domestic violence, police rape, and public sexual harassment and women's access on political party.
