Gender + women’s rights in focus in the foreign press on 15 June 2021

Gender and women’s rights seems to be generating a lot of attention from the foreign press this morning: An opinion piece in Reuters commemorates the one-year anniversary of the death of LGBT rights activist Sarah Hegazi, ABC News is out with a piece on Egypt’s #MeToo movement, and Reuters has the spotlight on a female boxing coach in Beni Suef.

Elsewhere: The Jerusalem Post claims that the Palestinian Authority is unhappy with the recent rapprochment between Egypt and Hamas, the Guardian is out with another piece on Giulio Regeni while the National carries an image gallery of Egyptian Copts’ visiting the “Second Bethlehem” on the Nile.
