Fri, 02/11/2011

"It was so hard to go from the joy and communal spirit of Egypt to a congressional hearing about the implications of the Egyptian uprising on US foreign policy," says Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin about witnessing revolutionary history in Egypt. "How sad it is that those we've elected have so little regard for the most astounding people's grassroots non-violent revolution that we've seen in our lifetimes."

Hear about the amazing journey of a Code Pink's women's delegation in Egypt, and voices from Egyptian women at the barricades: Asmaa Mahfouz -- whose video plea helped spark the uprising-- and thoughts from Egyptian feminists and authors Ahdaf Soueif and Nawal El Sadaawi.
