Summary
A half hour documentary about social media in Egypt. Had it not been for Youtube, Facebook and Twitter the story of Egyptian activist Samira Ibrahim may never come to light. A few months after the legendary Egyptian revolution, she was arrested in the street of Cairo and subjected to a "virginity test" by the military. Unlike other women who were exposed to the same humiliation, she fought back, and today she has become an important symbol for the young activists in Egypt. Watch the story of Samira and her struggle on the social media.
