Crimes Against Women Unit

This is a good move:
Egyptian Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim has ordered a new department formed to combat crimes of violence against women in collaboration with the ministry's department of human rights, a security source told Al-Ahram Arabic news website.
The source said the new department will receive complaints of assaults or violence against women and take the needed legal action, especially in cases of mass assault.
Forces of the new department should be present in crowded places, public transportation, festivals, sporting matches and other places where women are especially exposed to assault...
Earlier last week, a ministerial committee tasked with examining the issue of sexual harassment in Egypt announced a plan to combat the problem, including heavy security presence in public squares and crowded areas.
