Soraya Bahgat: Learning On The Go: on women’s rights and activism
Soraya Bahgat will share her journey as an “accidental activist” and social entrepreneur.

The movement intervened in over 100 cases and brought the pandemic to local and international media attention. This contributed to Egypt passing a landmark sexual harassment law in 2014.
