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.

Egyptian Women Protesters Ignored By American Media Distorting Their Role

Al Jazeera-“March of Millions” | Chris Matthews AOC Front Page

Anne of Carversville would have supported the women of Egypt under any circumstances. But a problem has emerged in the protests that is unexpected but perhaps should not come as a surprise.

The American media, dominated by white males, has virtually ignored the reality that women in Egypt are not only actively involved in the protests but feature in many images as leaders. Egyptian women are at the front of the line, and men are behind them.

America is a truly patriarchal country itself, much more than the Scandinavian countries or Germany today. Personally, I believe French women are more liberated than Americans, but some people don’t agree.

As the Egyptian protests increased, it became obvious that the American press was ignoring the role of women, making them veiled and silent as history was being created. Most of women’s history is not written, because men have controlled the media.

On Sunday an ordinary woman like myself Leil-Zahra Mortada, with the support of photographers, started “Women of Egypt” on Facebook. I supported her by writing the article below. Last night American media pundit Chris Matthews, known for his sexism towards women, called today’s protests in Egypt the “Million Man March”. I was furious!

He was not alone. Anderson Cooper, on the ground in Egypt, also called it the “Million Man March” at a time when Al Jazeera translated the name of the event to “March of Millions”. Almost 50 years after the second wave of feminism began in America, we can’t get our own media to tell women’s stories with accuracy.

When Anne of Carversville writes that we support all the world’s women, it’s not only because we care deeply but because we understand that the same yoke rests on our necks as American women, just not as tightly.

I am committed to tell the story of Egypt’s women with clarity and accuracy, but I will tell it. History is being written at this moment, and I am clear that the American press, due to our own patriarchal prejudices, will not tell the women’s story with any accuracy.

The involvement of Egyptian women in the demands for reform in their country is not a footnote to history, a sidebar for an hour-long documentary on the BBC.

The treatment of Egyptian women by the American press is dreadful, and it begins with the decision of so many American reporters and editors to call today’s march the “Million Man March”.
