A female student at Cairo University was sexually attacked by “dozens” of fellow students on Sunday, According to a statement released by the anti-sexual violence group I Saw Harassment (Shoft Taharosh).

According to the group’s statement, the woman was physically and verbally assaulted and had to be escorted off campus by security officials. During and after the incident, the perpetrators reportedly filmed the victim with their mobile phones.

I Saw Harassment is one of many anti-sexual violence groups that have sprung up in recent years to confront widespread sexual harassment and challenge general indifference on the part of police and the general Egyptian public towards the plight of survivors of sexual abuse.

According to a UN report issued last year an overwhelming majority of Egyptian women (99.3%) have experienced some sort of sexual harassment, and 96.5% of women had been sexually assaulted in some way.
