“I realized all the male rappers must have a track in which they talk about girls and their clothes, blaming girls for everything happening around us,” said 19-year-old Mayam Mahmoud, an Egyptian rapper. “That wasn’t right. So I rapped about girls and the problems they face.”

Mahmoud, who rose to fame after competing on Arabs Got Talent, is using her music to hit back at Egypt’s troubles with sexual harassment.
