Wearing vests painted with the slogan 'Anti-harassment', a group of volunteers confront a group of teasing young boys near Cairo's Tahrir Square. Instead of taking to the streets with air horns and toy guns and hissing at women like many of their peers, the small group of young Egyptian men tried to secure the streets of downtown Cairo during Eid al-adha, one of Islam’s most important holidays, a time when fears of sexual harassment spike. Their effort largely failed, but it shows the extent of the sexual harassment scourge facing Egypt and the government’s failures to address it. (AP Photo/ Maggie Fick)
