Egypt in the News on 20 September 2020

Women’s rights are leading coverage on Egypt in the foreign press this morning. Deutsche Welle says Egypt’s #MeToo movement has been “stifled” after witnesses to the 2014 Fairmont [redacted] case were charged “with vague crimes.” The crackdown on female TikTok users also continues to receive coverage, with public radio program the World recapping the arrests of at least nine women this year for posting content deemed immoral.

Elsewhere, tourism and Ancient Egypt are getting some ink: The country’s usually-bustling tourism hotspots are bracing for a tough winter season as the covid-induced slump looks to continue, writes Reuters. Meanwhile, National Geographic looks at how King Tut’s grandparents oversaw during their 38-year reign a prosperous and largely peaceful empire from 1391 to 1353 BC and were focused on monument building and artistic expression.
