Egypt is near the top the list worldwide when it comes to sexual harassment. For the first time there has been a case in court against an editor. May Elshamy accused her editor of sexual harassment in the newsroom of the online Youm7 website. She has since faced a horrific online and offline campaign for daring to speak up. Will this encourage other journalists to do the same? Or discourage them? How did the #metoo hashtag resonate in the Arab world? Journalists facing harassment inside and outside the newsroom are increasingly speaking up online and also taking legal action.
