In her native Egypt, Ohio University graduate student Nihal Said says she faced sexual harassment in public every day.
"It restricts mobility for women and it affects all women in Egypt," Said says. "You don't see a lot of women on the street. They would rather drive or use transportation, even if walking is easier."
Said was interviewed by Ohio University's Office of Research Communication for her research into how the Egyptian public was combating sexual harassment. Currently in her 2nd year of Ohio University's Communication and Development Studies Program, Said details the methods used to conduct her research and how it was affected by the events of the Arab Spring.
