Two Years into Arab Spring

Women in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and other countries are finding increased problems under the fledgling new governments that replaced dictators two years ago in the revolutions called "the Arab spring."

In Egypt, some Islamist leaders are blaming women for being assaulted and raped in public areas.  Police protection has decreased.

In Tunisia ultraconservatives want to bring back veiling of women.

It's so easy for men to find excuses to deny women their simple human rights.  Each day is a new battle.
