Egypt: Sisters of the Revolution

Three years ago Bill Law travelled to Egypt for Crossing Continents to meet five extraordinary women who were fighting for human rights and equal pay for women in Egypt.

For this programme, Bill returns to Egypt to tell the story of the unfolding revolution through the eyes of those very same five women.

Their stories are a unique insight into how the revolution came about and raise questions about its future.
