Egyptian boys follow young women in an attempt to sexual harassment at the Zoo as thousands gather to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, in Cairo, Egypt, on Aug. 08, 2013. Initiatives to counter sexual harassment in Egypt have mushroomed in recent months. Vigilantes groups have started protecting women at gatherings, particularly at large protests or during national holidays when groping and harassment in crowds is at an all-time high. Activists have offered self-defense classes for women and social networks sites have been started where women can "name and shame" their harassers. Photo by Ahmed Asad
