Egypt targets women for dancing in TikTok videos

The World

Nine women in Egypt have been charged with "harming Egyptian family values" over posts they made on the social media platform TikTok. They were charged using a cybercrime law that critics say is being used to get rid of online space in a country where dissent is already illegal and enforcement is ambiguous. Supporters of the defendants say the legal case is another version of Egypt's systemic oppression of women and that it's closely tied with Egypt's zero tolerance for any kind of political dissent.
