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.

The speech was at a Coalition of Resistance meeting, at University of London Union (ULU), on International Women's Day.
