Big Ideas: The Roots of the Egyptian Revolution - From Tahrir Square to Liberation From Dictatorship

Mona Eltahawy

BMW Edge - CODE 1906

Mona Eltahawy is an award winning columnist and an international public speaker on Arab and Muslim issues. During the 18-day revolution that toppled Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, she appeared on most major media outlets, leading the feminist website Jezebel to describe her as 'The Woman Explaining Egypt to the West'. She explores the roots of the various social and political movements in Egypt that resulted in the monumental overthrow of Mubarak, and what it means for global politics.
