Description

This documentary spotlights Egypt's new democracy and highlights the importance of citizen participation in shaping and securing it. In 2005, President Mubarak announced that Egypt would hold multi-party presidential elections. At the same time, three women activists started a grassroots campaign to empower the public and hold the government accountable. They film the election process, capturing violence and voter fraud, and broadcast the footage on their website.
