A new UN study attempts to quantify the prevalence of gang rape and other forms of violence against women in Asia - by talking with the men themselves. It reveals some startling statistics. Half of the 10,000 men surveyed in six Asia Pacific countries admitted they had abused their partners, and one in four had committed rape.
The study also showed alarming levels of gang rape, with some of the highest levels found in Cambodia. Of the men surveyed there, more than 5% said they’d taken part in a gang rape - higher than the 2% typically seen in most of the other sites surveyed.

EGYPT, Cairo : Egyptian women shout slogans against President Mohammed Morsi as they join hundreds of thousands demonstrating against President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim brotherhood outside the Egyptian presidential palace on July 3, 2013 in Cairo, Egypt. Cheers erupted, firecrackers ignite and horns were honked as soon as the army announced President Mohamed Morsi’s rule was over, ending Egypt’s worst crisis since its 2011 revolt.

Today, almost a year since the election of longtime Muslim Brotherhood figure President Mohamed Morsi, there is a general feeling that nothing has really changed in terms of citizens’ rights. None of the security officials responsible for the series of killings of protesters since January 2011 have been convicted. As this in turn sparks new demonstrations, the Brotherhood regime continues the use of thuggery and public violence, together with sexual harassment, to terrorize citizens and deter them from protest in Tahrir Square.
But these policies, and the statements legitimizing them by military officials and Islamist politicians alike, have become the butt of jokes and biting comments in oppositional media. Among the most striking examples of this has been the graffiti art of young Egyptian activists across the country. The impertinence in their depictions of the authorities has become one of the most powerful ways of unmaking the system. Indeed, many believe that the military junta had been defeated morally well before Morsi replaced it, thanks to the public ridicule of its violence in popular jokes and graffiti.
From afar, Tahrir Square appears almost festive as protesters chant against the Islamist president who was overthrown by the Egyptian military last week. But inside the crushing crowds, the scene can be a lot more sinister.
In a video posted by the Muslim Brotherhood, an unidentified woman cries out as men attack her. The group, from which former President Mohammed Morsi hails, claims the attack occurred in Tahrir Square in late June.
Violence and chaos on the streets of Egypt today, but remarkable kids like this give you hope for the country’s future.
