Not so fun if your on a bus and getting groped by some pervert.
I was interested in reading about how women are treated in Egypt, the level of sexual harassment is astonishing. With girls as young as 12 being groped, and this being fairly common.
In my reality, the woman being touched responds with outrage, invading his personal space and removing his anonymity. He is off balance, looking more pathetic, while she is on the assertive.
I will say sexual harrasment is not particular to Egypt or India, but in the West we have specific laws in place to counter such behaviour, though they are heavily slated against women. The reason i cited those two countries is because the prejudice against women is egregious. Though things are changing with women taking on the perverts and pushing for social change.

This kind of thing is cultural and the only way things change is when the group being persecuted seeks political action, running for office, protesting and campaigning. Which takes time and commitment and leaves you open to attack.
Anything that you have right now, your civil rights, your right to have a weekend, your right to be paid fairly, all came from people who protested and campaigned. The true heroes of any society are those who seek improvement for others at the cost of their own safety and personal lives.
