Detail of “Pyramid of Crisis” by Hanna El Degham. Mohamed Mahmoud Street, Cairo.
A veiled woman carries a gas canister with the word "change" in red letters. The idea for the mural was developed after Hanaa read in a newspaper that, on the day of the parliamentary elections that followed the revolution, women waited in a long line to fill their empty cooking-gas canisters, while at the same time no one stood in line to cast their vote.
