Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has thrown his support behind a UN-sponsored campaign to end violence against women in his homeland Egypt where sexual harassment is rampant. Hundreds of thousands of people viewed an animated video teaching men to respect women and their rights after national team icon Salah shared it online.
"Because I'm a man who understands that a man and a woman have the same rights and responsibilities, I decided to support the 'Because I'm a man' campaign," Salah wrote in posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on Wednesday. The video, produced as part of a campaign by UN Women Egypt and Egypt's state-run National Council for Women, showed a man rejecting widespread stereotypes over the role of women in the country's conservative society. "Because I'm a chivalrous man, I stood up to
violence against women," a voice says. AFP
