The National Front for Egyptian Women called for a protest on Monday at 7pm CMT in Talaat Harb Street, Downtown Cairo, to demand that previously-gained rights for women are secured, and to ensure the inclusion of women's rights in the new constitution.

The National Front for Egyptian Women is a coalition that includes representatives from the Tagamu Party, the Socialist Youth Union, the Wafd Party, the Nasserist Party, Dostor Party, Al-Adl Party, the Popular Socialist Coalition, Ghad El-Thawra party, as well as several rights groups and some public figures.

Women's rights activists have conducted several recent protests, including some highlighting the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assaults on female protesters in Tahrir Square.
