483) The Bright Side of Women!

Women have strengths that amaze men.  
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,  
but they hold happiness, love and joy.  

They smile when they want to scream.  
They sing when they want to cry.  
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.  
They stand up to injustice.  
They don't take "no" for an answer  
when they believe there is a better solution.  
They go without so their family can have.  
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.  

They love unconditionally.  
They cry when their children excel  
and cheer when their friends get awards.  
They are happy when they hear about  
a birth or a wedding.  
Their hearts break when a friend dies.  
They grieve at the loss of a family member,  
yet they are strong when they  
think there is no strength left.  
They know that a hug and a kiss  
can heal a broken heart.  

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.  
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you  
to show how much they care about you.  
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.  

They bring joy, hope and love.  
They have the compassion and ideas.  
They give moral support to their  
family and friends.  

Women have vital things to say  
and everything to give.

don't you think that it's soo strange that you have all this nice feelings towards women and you are still single so far?

bel3aks ya Nour..

1. coz i have all these nice feelings I admit that I am soo afraid to ruin them specially that one of my experiences were really bad..
but I recovered and looking forward again :)

2. Relationship with women doesn't only mean "love". I have always had a female best friend, who gives a different flavor to my life even when I am single.

The Collective Harassment During the Eid El Fitr Holiday and the Absence of a Law

ECWR is saddened by the harassment incident that took place on the second day of the Eid El Fitr holiday. A group of young people harassed women and girls who were walking in Gamet El Dowal ElArabia Street in Mohandseen, Giza. ECWR is interested in following up on the investigations of the incident and the accused who have been arrested.

In the absence of security forces and policemen, over 100 young men aggressively harassed women and girls, as some newspapers reported. 38 young men were arrested and transferred to the DA in Agouza, Cairo. They are being held in detention until the investigation is closed.

ECWR wishes to highlight the importance of deploying security forces early, especially during holidays, in order to be able to control and confront what came to be called “Collective Harassment During the Holiday.”

Even though security forces were completely absent when the harassment broke out and arrived late, they did play a positive role arresting the harassers. This is a good step from the Interior Ministry, but we wish to progress towards a reliable mechanism for securing our streets and ensuring the right of all to physical safety. The right to public safety and physical freedom is a basic right guaranteed by the Egyptian constitution and international agreements. Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: "everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person." Alongside with numerous other human rights treaties, this supports the idea of a right to privacy and security, which ought to be guaranteed by the state.

In absence of a law prohibiting harassment and a security force that neither cares to protect people and provide secure streets for citizens, nor to enforce a right to privacy, the problem is aggravated. The need for protection and security makes the need for a legislative intervention appear even clearer.

Even though sexual harassment is considered a recent crime in Egyptian society, the Egyptian criminal code lacks the precise definition of sexual harassment. Reporting Sexual Harassment falls under article 306 of the Penal Code, which states that "any person offending the modesty of a woman whether verbally or physically, shall be punished either by imprisonment of up to one year or a fine that's not less than 200 L.E. and not more than 1000 L.E., or both.”

This article lacks the precise definition of the concept of sexual harassment, which ECWR defines as "unwanted sexual conduct deliberately perpetrated by the harasser, resulting in sexual, physical, or psychological abuse of the victim regardless of location, whether in the workplace, the street, public transportation, educational institution, or even in private places such as home or in the company of others such as relatives or colleagues, etc.”

The sexual harassment incident described above makes it very clear that due to the current legal situation, sexual harassment is not dealt with by the law, but actually avoided by the legislation. Not addressing this problem leads to total injustice, especially since victims often hesitate to report incidents for lack of confidence in the legal system or fear of being blamed herself. Those reasons were clearly stated in ECWR's study on sexual harassment, "Clouds in Egypt’s Sky."

We encourage victims to report incidents and therefore deprive criminals of the chance to escape justice and a fair trial. We also hope that the MPs will put the Sexual Harassment Law bill on the top of their priorities for this year’s parliamentary session.

ECWR encourages the cooperation of all stakeholders and civil society institutions to support its campaign against sexual harassment "Making Egypt’s Streets Safe for Everyone," and work together towards reducing harassment in our streets.

Progress can already be made by raising the number of reported incidents and reforming the status of the victim in society. These changes themselves could help to bring crimes to court and establish justice.

to answer your questoion about why we love women and prefer being single

Love is holding hands in the street.
Marriage is holding arguments in the street.

Love is dinner for 2 in your favorite restaurant.
Marriage is a take home packet.

Love is cuddling on a sofa.
Marriage is one of them sleeping on a sofa.

Love is talking about having children.
Marriage is talking about getting away from children.

Love is going to bed early.
Marriage is going to sleep early.

Love is a romantic drive.
Marriage is arrive on tops curvy tarmac .

Love is losing your appetite.
Marriage is losing your figure.

Love is sweet nothing in the ear.
Marriage is sweet nothing in the bank.

Tv has no place in love.
Marriage is a fight for remote control.

Love is 1 drink and 2 straws.
Marriage is "Don't you think you've had enough!".

Conclusion: "Love is blind, Marriage is an eye opener!"

omar if you are prefering to be single in order not to "hold arguments in the street" so you also better not to deal with any other person, coz daily we are having these arguments with our friends, parents, even people we don't know sometimes.

one day you will discover that u lost the most precious days without someone to share your life with.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
if a woman does so to show how much she cares she will be immediately be accused of being "overwhelming and pushy" :)
to omar, if you get to read this:
the comparison you held is a choice, not a fact. couple choose either follow the model of love, or to follow the model of marraige.
true love is not blind.. on contrary. its a clear vision of the person you love AND accept.
hope you get to read those words some day :)
