"Your Silence is Harassment". That's the name of a photo campaign launched by Egyptian photographer Marwa Ragheb who is leading a fight against sexual harassment and gender-based violence in Egypt. 

سكوتك تحرش, which translates to "Your Silence is Harassment", aims to shake societal norms and point a finger at the bystanders who are not standing up for women experiencing sexual harassment. 

The campaign released powerful images of staged instances of harassment that may occur in public spaces, at the work place or even on public transportation. 

Here are a few photos from the Marwa Ragheb photography Facebook page.

According to a report that was released in 2013 by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, 99.3% of Egyptian women have experienced some form of sexual harassment. 

96.5% of these women experienced physical sexual harassment whereas 95.5% said they experienced verbal abuse. 

The majority of Egyptians blame women for inciting sexual harassment by claiming that their tight clothing means: "asking for it". 

This photo campaign however wants to change this notion by showing that bystanders who witness sexual harassment and do nothing about it are the reason there still is gender-based violence in Egypt. 

Back in 2011, Egypt's uprisings put gender-based violence in the spotlight, which prompted the rise of many women's NGOs and campaigns to end sexual harassment. 

Unfortunately not much has changed since then and gender-based violence against women, like many places in the world, is still very prevalent in Egypt's public sphere and behind closed doors.
