Human rights organizations have been extremely vocal in their criticism of the Egyptian authorities for their failure to safeguard women.

According to Amnesty International’s most recent country report, Egyptian authorities are failing “to prevent and investigate pervasive violence against women and girls,” according to the organization’s findings. In addition, Human Rights Watch asserts that Egyptian authorities “rolled out a widespread campaign of arrests and prosecutions targeting women social media influencers, in violation of their rights to privacy, freedom of speech, and non-discrimination.” [Citation needed]
