No, it’s not U.S. President Barack Obama who set the future for democracy in the Middle East in motion with his 2009 Cairo speech. No, it’s not even a man! It’s Asmaaa Mahfouz, the woman behind Egypt’s pro-democracy revolution.

So much has been written about women’s rights in Muslim countries, even citing this issue as a justification for the western military invasion, but the western feminist movement remains largely silent about the current pro-democracy uprising in Egypt.
