  • Shorts in the (Ain) Shams: Egyptian University Bans Shorts


    You don’t need Cairo Gossip to tell you that our sisters, daughters, mothers and Kasr El Nil Bridge girlfriends have it tough in Egypt.

    Sexual harassment and systematic sexism have all but condemned the Egyptian woman to an eternal existence as a second class citizen. No, sorry – make that a fourth class citizen.

    But this week, Ain Shams University took a big step towards leveling the playing field between the sexes, by allegedly banning its male students from wearing shorts.

    Mark this year, ladies and gentleman, for today, as we approach a historic academic year, we move forwards to a better future; a future where man and woman can be equally repressed.

    Sorry, fella. NO SHORTS.
