Egypt has a reputation for sexually harassing females, especially in the capital, Cairo. Not many females have said they've not experienced it. However, for some reason, my wife who spends all her work time in central Cairo, has experienced none whatsoever. I'm not sure how to interpret that.
One thing that has happened to a lot of the women in my company, which holds many of its seminars and training courses in Cairo, is that they have been approached by official-seeming people "assisting" them at the airport upon arrival.
Just about all of them, if the person obtained their name and the name of their hotel, received numerous obscene phone calls to their hotel room all through the night, sometimes for the length of their stay unless they informed the reception to block calls.
Yes, it happens. I really must stop hanging around the airport.
I've just remembered the only incident I can think of, we were in Aswan walking along the Corniche one evening. I was a little ahead of my wife, I had the girls and she was with my lad. I heard her shout and turned round. She was shouting at a man near to her. I started running towards her and as I was still a few metres away she lashed out and hit him in the face. He staggered back and I came to a halt between him and her. He began to walk away as my wife hurled abuse at him in every language she knows (including Arabic) much to the amusement of many passers-by. A couple of men approached us to ask if we were okay and if they could help but I said I think my wife can manage, thank you.
Apparently the man had said to her, "Can I fuck you", no more than that before she reacted. I did wonder what would have happened to him had he grabbed hold of her.
