Egyptian Heroine

This is a video made by a young Egyptian woman which is being credited as the spark that ignited the Revolution. The young woman is Asmaa Mahfouz. Asmaa’s bravery to put her name, number and face on the video is extraordinary considering the terrifying risk of retribution from the Egyptian Ministry of the Interior. She is a 26 year old human rights activist, and one of the founders of the April 6 Youth Movement.
