Cairo 678 is a narrative feature film about the pervasive yet under-reported problem of sexual harassment in modern Cairo. A class screening of the film may supplement a social studies, women’s studies, or global studies curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, the film will challenge students to think critically about feminism and gender inequality in a contemporary Muslim society. Discussion questions and supplementary materials facilitate further research into related topics such as modern Egyptian politics and the history of Egyptian feminism.
