[Video] Introduction to Women of Minya Day by Day

Women of Minya Day by Day is the newest project of the New Women Foundation [ar] based in Cairo. Nevine Ebeid and other members of the Foundation team will provide workshops to women living and working in El Minya located approximately 250 km south of the capital city. The target participants will be women who work in informal agricultural and domestic jobs, and who are often faced with discrimination and harrassment. The team will show the women how to use digital tools, such as audio recorders and video cameras to capture images in order to tell the stories of their daily work lives, and which will be featured on the New Women Foundation website. In this video, Nevine talks about how the project will be a first step towards advocating for increased rights of the women and to give this population a voice online.
