The woman who monitored Egypt's elections

June 25th, 2012

Imagine a world where a young woman is the one keeping tabs on the men who sought to lead Egypt. As the country took its historic steps toward democracy, a young activist has been on the front lines, making sure the country's first democratic presidential election was free and fair. Christiane Amanpour spent the afternoon with Dalia Ziada in Cairo to see how a woman can be a catalyst for change in the Middle East.

    Dalia is one of thousands of young women activists in Egypt who are often more brave and effective than men. On January 25th in fact many of those leading the protests were female. Why should this seem unusual? and is Egypt really a 'man's world'?
