Citizen journalist and political activist, Gigi Ibrahim, speaks about the role of women in the recent Egyptian uprising.
With the current public sector cuts, women will bear nearly 75% of the brunt of the Tory-Liberal coalition plans. This is despite the fact that women's income is still considerably lower than men's. Women are, however, at the forefront of the resistance against cuts and continue to fight for equality in all aspects of British society, in Tunisia, Egypt, Wisconsin and across the world.
The speech was at a Coalition of Resistance meeting, at University of London Union (ULU), on International Women's Day.
