CAIRO -- In a Muslim country where the numbers of women wearing the veil are rising, and so -- by most accounts -- are incidents of groping and catcalls in the streets, the message in ads circulating anonymously in e-mails here in Egypt is clear: "A veil to protect, or eyes will molest," one warns.
The words sit over two illustrations, one comparing a veiled woman, her hair and neck covered in the manner known to Muslims as hijab, to a wrapped candy, untouched and pure.

In this edition of The Interview, talks to Alia Soliman of Harass Map about the work its volunteers do online and on the streets to help end sexual violence in Egypt for good. All the factors and the context are different, depending on the specific situation and where it happens—if it happens on the street, if it happens at a company or workplace, or university, for example. Women who wear the veil get harassed, women who wear the burqa or the niqab get sexually harassed, even men get sexually harassed—which is one of the things that we also try to talk about in our trainings.
