This cartoon is selected in our project 360 Degrees for the theme women's rights after the Arab Spring, and is based on a comment by Rona Elgebaly: 'The new constitution’s articles do not talk about women’s rights or freedoms and do not respect the international treaties that protect her dignity. Therefore I see that if the constitution is implemented the woman will go backward again and things will get worse. There are articles that the constitution should have addressed and freedom should have been given to women in many issues. The new constitution does not give rights to the divorced woman nor the woman as the only breadwinner, and did not guarantee the female worker equal rights. The only thing it leads to is allowing 13-year-olds getting married. Many rights have been wasted that should have been protected.'
