On Tuesday, thousands of women—the Associated Press’s estimate put the number at ten thousand—went to Tahrir Square to protest. (According to Reuters, the women were “surrounded by men pledging to protect them.”) The turnout was, no doubt, driven by the violence of the recent clashes, which began December 16th and have left an estimated eight hundred and fifty people injured and fourteen dead. But it can also be explained, in part, by a single video from December 17th.
