Egyptian lawyer says raping women in revealing clothing is ‘national duty’

“A girl walking like this – harassing her is a patriotic duty and raping her is a national duty.”

An Egyptian lawyer has sparked outrage after saying in a TV debate that raping or harassing women wearing revealing clothing is a “national duty”.
Nabih al-Wahsh made the remarks in a panel show broadcast on Al-Assema earlier this month during a debate over a draft law on prostitution.
In the below clip, he is seen at 22 seconds asking: “Would you accept a girl walking in the street revealing half of her thigh? A girl walking like this – harassing her is a patriotic duty and raping her is a national duty.”


The remarks have sparked outrage across the country, with Egypt’s National Council for Women announcing that it plans to file a complaint against the lawyer and the TV channel.
The council also urged media outlets not to host controversial figures who make remarks that incite violence against women.
