Niqab-Wearing Egyptian Women Saved CBS Lara Logan

X-posted in Sexual Politics

In her first television interview since being sexually assaulted two months ago, CBS News chief foreign correspondent and “60 Minutes” reporter Lara Logan revealed last Sunday evening what happened to her in Tahrir Square. (We apologize for the small screen and are looking for another. The YouTube video can’t be embedded.)

In an interview with Scott Pelley, Lara shared the details of her horrific assault, most of the known to our readers — with one major exception. The reporter didn’t mention that she returned to Egypt to cover the story, after already being detained and jailed by the authorities.

Lara left Egypt very ill but couldn’t stay away as a journalist in one of the biggest stories of her lifetime.The 60 minutes interview picks up her story at this point.

The video is horrific to listen to although the reporter and mother of two young children is very circumspect and controlled. In relaying her story she confirmed details that we hoped were correct when we wrote them.

Lara Logan Saved By Niqab-Wearing Egyptian Women

It is true that Lara was saved by women, a group wearing niqabs who threw themselves on her as a human shield. The lead woman also poured water all over the dying journalist, who could no longer breath.

Lara Logan Speaks To Tahrir Sq Sexual Assault on 60 Minutes

RedTracker| CBS correspondent Lara Logan will be interviewed on CBS’s 60 MInutes on Sunday, about her sexual assault in Cairo. Logan says she will discuss the Tahrir Square attack in detail in that single interview and then move on from the event, saying ‘I don’t want this to define me.’

Reading her comments in the NYTimes in light of our earlier reporting on Lara Loga, the noteworthy new development in the story is Logan’s commitment to international women’s sexual politics.

Before the assault, Ms. Logan said, she did not know about the levels of harassment and abuse that women in Egypt and other countries regularly experienced. “I would have paid more attention to it if I had had any sense of it,” she said. “When women are harassed and subjected to this in society, they’re denied an equal place in that society. Public spaces don’t belong to them. Men control it. It reaffirms the oppressive role of men in the society.”

Reflecting on her own 25 minute assault, Logan says: ’ What really struck me was how merciless they were. They really enjoyed my pain and suffering. It incited them to more violence.’

Egyptian Women Unite, Saying "We Are All Lara Logan"

One of the glorious notes of Egypt’s sustained demonstrations to oust former President Hosni Mubarak were the underreported in Western media scenes of Egyptian women protesting alongside men with almost no sexual harassment towards the women.

I was contacted by Egyptian women asking why their faces weren’t on TV and the ‘March of Millions’ was called the ‘Million Man March’ by the most American press, until little people like AOC began calling them on their actions.

With women reporters in the region, the stories of the courageous Egyptian women began appearing.

In the aftermath of the jubilation in Cairo, the horrific details of the vicious assault on CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan became news, reminding us of a theme that stretches from Cairo to Washington DC.

Men insist on controlling women’s bodies in one way or another in most countries of the world.

If the revolution happened on Facebook, we hope now that the women of Egypt can progress with international support from women everywhere — even as we fight off one law after another in America to control our own physicality and status as ‘incubators’, the term to describe women by former House Representative Bart Stupak during the heated health care debate.

It was the women of Egypt who threw themselves on a naked, beaten and sexually assaulted Lara Logan, to save her from the mob of men intent on raping her and killing her.

That image is embedded in my mind as a symbol of a new international sisterhood that could rise out of this tragedy.

The Daily Beast writes that the women of Egypt are moved not only by the horror of what happened to Logan but an understanding that the world’s women are unified in varying degrees by this common theme.

Sexually Assaulted in Egypt | Lara Logan's Career As Top Reporter

CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan in Egypt’s Tahrir Square moments before she was assaulted covering the jubilation after the resignation of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. There are no suggestions that any of the men visible behind Logan were involved in her assault.RedTracker| New details are emerging regarding the assault of Lara Logan, chief foreign correspondent for CBS News network, who was set upon by a mob of more than 200 people in Cairo’s Tahrir Square celebrating the resignation of Hosni Mubarak.

While the focus of our article is Lara Logan, The Committee to Protect Journalists reports that other journalists were attacked as well, as part of a last ditch effort by Mubarak supporters to censor news of the uprising.

CPI members Jehad Ali and Lara LoganLogan is a member of the CPJ Board of Directors, overseeing the program that aids journalists who have been victims of violence and repression.

“We have seen Lara’s compassion at work while helping journalists who have faced brutal aggression while doing their jobs,” CPJ Chairman Paul Steiger said. “She is a brilliant, courageous, and committed reporter. Our thoughts are with Lara as she recovers.” via CPJ

Details of Lara Logan Assault

Logan was assaulted by a mob of more than 200 people, enduring ‘a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating,’ according to CBS. The correspondent was separated from her team and then attacked, saved by a group of women and about 20 Egyptian soldiers.

Logan taken to the Four Season Hotel, where she was treated and sedated, then flown back to the US immediately and hospitalized in a New York hospital for five days. The fearless reporter is now recovering at home in Washington D.C.

In details in today’s South African News, Lara Logan — born and raised in Durban, South Africa — has clarified that during the attack her clothes were ripped off; she was kicked, punched and had her hair torn out; and she was sexually assaulted.

Logan said that the group of Egyptian women threw themselves on top of her, protecting her from further harm and full-penetration rape.

The Daily Mail writes that what originally appeared to be bite marks all over Lara’s body and including her private parts are now believed to be the result of extreme pinching. Medical sources say that she was stripped and beaten with the makeshift poles that were used for flag flying during the demonstration.

Logan Returned to Egypt Days After Being Arrested

Lara Logan, who had been detained in Egypt and left the country after being released from police custody, interviewed on Charlie Rose before her return to Egypt. Logan is an amazingly articulate journalist who went back to the country to finish her story, knowing that she was at risk.

Americans View Al Jazeera English Web | Cable Blocks In US

AOC has sourced articles out of Al Jazeera from our inception. We like Al Jazeera very much and find it to be far more even-handed in reporting issues than say FOX News. We have never found a major discrepancy between Al Jazeera and the BBC News, for example.

Often we go to Al Jazeera to check for reporting that runs counter to what we’re reading in the Western press. Not being big TV watchers, we were surprised to learn just now that Canadian viewers can turn on Al Jazeera English cable TV but most Americans cannot.

For all practical purposes, Al Jazeera is blocked from broadcasting in America.

The result of the Al Jazeera English blackout in the United States has been a surge in traffic to the media outlet’s website, where footage can be seen streaming live. The last 24 hours have seen a two-and-a-half thousand percent increase in web traffic, Tony Burman, head of North American strategies for Al Jazeera English, told HuffPost. Sixty percent of that traffic, he said, has come from the United States. via Huff Po

A few days ago, Anne proposed that the fact that only 28% of biology teachers teach evolution as mandated by numerous court cases is that they fear reprisals from a few parents. Our children are not educated in science fully endorsed by the Vatican but opposed by fundamentalist Christians who say Genesis is true and should be the law of the land.

The minority rules although some of our Conservative friends — many of whom accept intelligent design — have pointed out that the teachers should be help accountable for not teaching what both their curriculums and the Supreme Court mandate.

American Media Ignores Egyptian Women Protestors | They're Not All Home Under Male Protection

We want to support the women of Egypt, focusing attention to the new Facebook album “Women of Egypt”, launched on Facebook today by Leil-Zahra Mortada. These images change the reporting on America’s biggest networks, which are more likely to suggest that Egypt’s women are behind closed doors, being guarded by their husbands and brothers.

This is certainly the case, as the brave people of Egypt fight for their human rights.

However, this new album “Women of Egypt” seeks to portray many Egyptian as not quite ready to adopt the veil and do as they are told in a more restricted Egypt, as was suggested would be their fate on news programs today.

I’ve followed Egypt all day, with no sense that women are even involved, but plenty of stories about how they are being protected by their men.

Women of Egypt are not only participating in the demonstrations but acting as leaders. The American press should readjust the gender lens in which they are portraying the women of Egypt, clearly editing out footage of women in Egypt in action.

America is known for gender bias in media here in America. Please give the world an accurate view of what is happening in Egypt, with women on the front line trying to create an Egypt that works for all. In its patriarchal lens of reporting, American media fosters the very kind of society we say we’re opposed to being created in Egypt.

When American media wonders why the social networking websites like Facebook do so well, it’s because we can tell the real story, without male bias in reporting and editing. Anne
