President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi hailed the role played by the Egyptian women, who he said “tasked themselves” to take part in the June 30 revolution in 2013.
During his speech at a session dubbed “To enhance the role of African women to achieve peace, security and development,” as part of the second day of the Aswan Forum held in Egypt, President EL-Sisi said millions of Egyptian women took to streets during the June 30 revolution to protect the Egyptian identity.
Although the regime at the time came to power through general elections in 2012, the Egyptian women, after a year, found that their way of ruling would ruin the Egyptian state.
He added that over 30 million people took to streets in the June 30 revolution, affirming that he appreciates and respects the role of the Egyptian women among those masses.
On July 24 the same year, President El-Sisi asked Egyptians to show up in the streets to give him the authorization to fight terrorism.
President El-Sisi, during the session, said Egyptian women escorted their children that day and filled streets, among 35 million Egyptian citizens to affirm support to him, then defense minister, to confront possible violence.
He also praised the Egyptian women’s performance when assuming an administrative work or a government position, saying that their performance is always excellent and is better than that of some men.
