The Project and Us
This project sheds the light on the participation of women in the Egyptian revolution and documents their experiences as part of the historical memory. It is also a tool for women empowerment everywhere and a source for researchers, students and everyone interested in the matter.
The participation of women in the Egyptian revolution didn’t come as a surprise to us, nor do we view it as an extraordinary phenomenon. Women are part of every society and form a part of the social, political and economical spectrum. It is history that tends in most cases to ostracize the participation of women and keep them in the shadow while highlighting the participation of men and attributing leading roles exclusively to them. This is why we are documenting Herstory.

What´s Money Got to Do with IT!
The Words of Women from the Egyptian Revolution or Herstory Egypt as we like to call it, is a very important project not only for today but for the future to come. We are creating a time-capsule, storing the stories and a chunk of the lives of women for History to remember, or to not-forget.
The videos and the material we are collecting and producing can be an important tool for the advancement of women rights and the empowerment of women everywhere. We have seen the impact of our first videos and the amount of attention they got from a wide range of countries in different continents.Please check our videos on our YouTube channel and hear the Words of the Women.
