MB's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie underlined women’s “vital role” ‎in the January 25 Revolution in a press conference

Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie underlined women’s “vital role” ‎in the January 25 Revolution, saying women are equally responsible as men to achieve ‎prosperity in Egypt.‎
    
‎“No one can deny the vital role the women played during the January 25 Revolution, ‎whether as activists, mothers or wives,” he said in the opening speech of a press ‎conference held by MB under the name of “Woman: From the revolution to the ‎prosperity.”‎

‎“Women made history, and with their success [during the 18-day revolt] they gave the whole ‎world a lesson about how to fight injustice and tyranny. They partook with men in everything.‎

‎“Our mission to lead Egypt to prosperity is even harder [than the revolution]. This is the ‎responsibility of men and women alike, in order to draw a bright future.”‎

Islamists in general are widely criticised for undermining women’s rights, but MB ‎stressed their importance in the society more than once.‎

The news conference was attended by a set of MB leaders, including Gomaa Amin, ‎Mahmoud Ezzat, Mahmoud Hussein and Mohie Hamed.‎
