In Tahrir Square, Demanding More Changes

Doria El Kerdany

Doria El Kerdany, a writer, a translator, and an Arabic language instructor at UNC-Chapel Hill, has been volunteering in Cairo’s Tahrir Square with a group looking to prevent the sexual harassment of women during protests. She is one of the 22 million people who have signed a petition in Egypt demanding changes in the way the country is run, and says there are ways to achieve democracy other than the ballot box.
