I completely disagree with what you said. Harassment in Sudan is widespread and it is a very serious problem. Which streets did you walk down? It is unbelievable to me that wearing tight jeans did not get one comment. Were you with male members of your family? I think it is dangerous to make statements like yours because people will read it and think all is well and good in Sudan when that is far from the case. No, we don’t feel safe and you shouldn’t say that or include the statement ‘in my personal experience’ but even that would be so ignorant and dismissive of the many women who live in Sudan and face problems every minute of the day. All you had to do was talk to some women, read some blogs written by women in Sudan and you would see how WRONG you got it. The article makes me sick because of your refusal to look anything up, oh just woke up and wrote something that will be published in a magazine about Sudan (the only English one? I’m not sure) to make you feel what exactly? Accomplished? Just stop. And I’d like to know who the hell accepted this piece. Absolutely ignorant and highly dismissive of ALMOST EVERY SUDANESE GIRL’S experience. Just for clarification, no we don’t feel safe. Even in areas such as riyad where people are supposedly of a higher class than your typical ignoramuses we get cat called, insulted, chased, talked to, approached, solicited and so much more. And in weddings those girls’ families are there, there are old people and adults, no one would hit on them at harass them in the presence of their,families. Simple as that. When you are dressed modestly and don’t wear makeup to draw attention, so much happens that it makes you question your sanity. Enough with the false representation. I also take issue with you,comparing Sudan and Egypt. Egyptian women speak out against harassment, hold rallies and organize campaigns to address these issues. You should feel glad to be a part of that. Whereas in Sudan nothing of the sort ever happened, unless you count one billion rising,which in my opinion is a waste of time with no real issues addressed (because dancing or singing to a group of people who already all know each other in one of the most expensive private schools in the country does NOTHING to enlighten or educate men and women on what is acceptable). Please, call me when you are walking down the street in tight jeans so I can document this rare occurrence of you not being harassed. I would LOVE to see that. And if you’re a teenager or a young girl, that explains a lot. CAN WE SEE SOME REAL EDITING?
