A “blonde young Western girl” journalist writes of being forced to leave Cairo prematurely following a horrific sexual and physical attack in Tahrir Square. Really tough read. Hugs to you, Natasha.
Ahdaf Soueif - novelist, commentator, activist - navigates her history of Cairo and her journey through the Revolution that’s redrawing its future. Through a map of stories drawn from private history and public record Soueif charts a story of the Revolution that is both intimately hers and publicly Egyptian. Ahdaf Soueif was born and brought up in Cairo. When the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 erupted on January 25th, she, along with thousands of others, called Tahrir Square home for eighteen days. She reported for the world’s media and did - like everyone else - whatever she could.
Soueif wrote a love letter to her beloved Cairo in this week’s issue.
