The sexual harassment of women in Egypt is on the rise and many of the victims are modestly dressed women who wear the Islamic headscarf.
A recent survey shows that women are harassed whatever they wear, which contradicts the widely held belief among men that provocative clothing is to blame.
Campaigners for women's rights are calling for a new law that clearly defines sexual harassment as a crime and makes it easier for women to report it.
However, as the BBC's Middle East correspondent Christian Fraser reports, some are now taking the law into their own hands.
