At last year's Annual Report Event, HarassMap presented to the public what the organization had observed and learned over the year 2011, both from the reports received by HarassMap and its work in communities. On March 30, 2013, HarassMap will hold its second Annual Report Event at Darb 1718. HarassMap invites guests to a presentation of the analysis of the data received in 2012, updates on on the issue of sexual harassment in Egypt, and artistic and personal expressions on the issue.
In 2012, HarassMap were once again shocked by some of the data it received and forced to reevaluate some of the misconceptions and stereotypes that are commonly given as reasons or excuses for sexual harassment. For example, they learned that in 39% of the reports received, harassers were specifically identified as being children. Children were also the main perpetrators of mob sexual harassments reported to HarassMap (52% were identified as children, 23% of them school students). Given this data, the claim that sexual frustration or delayed marriage are reasons for sexual harassment is clearly wrong!
Many more facts that refute claims such as these will be presented in the 2012 Annual Report Event. HarassMap hopes guests will accept the invitation and join them.
