This illustration is my contribution to the blogging and tweeting day against sexual harassment and gender-based violence, a call to action on June 20 initiated by activists in Egypt. In Lebanon, the team behind The Adventures of Salwa joined the campaign with a parallel blogging day. So did activists in Sudan.
