Cairo Foundation for Development and Law

Description

Since its inception in 2009, before the revolution of January shortly Foundation Cairo Development and the law, in Egypt, which is working with several organizations dealing with women's issues, especially the prevention of violence against women, the young and groups that were created in 2011 in the wake of the Egyptian revolution. A few groups working on these issues, has worked on CFDL almost every element of the rights of women.
One CFDL’s main focuses is on violence against women, particularly sexual violence, female genital mutilation (FGM), and rape. Drawing upon their existing relationships with Egyptian women, CFDL began mentoring and observing the subject. The findings of their research showed that violence against women tends to be well-organized and calculated, intent on terrorizing women and limiting their presence in the public sphere.
CFDL seeks to present basic legal services for women through the Legal Aids Unit, which represents victims of violence against legally in more than 250 lawsuits annually on behalf of survivors of violence of any form whatsoever, in addition to providing the necessary legal advice to women through the hotline. Further, the organization analyses and edits laws that do not guarantee gender equality through its extensive network of strong partnerships with the official institutions, civil society organizations, political parties, and independent politicians. The organization has succeeded through its campaign ''Egyptians between discrimination and exclusion from citizenship'', which has been launched in 2010 to get the approval of the Egyptian government in 2011 on the granting of the Egyptian nationality to children of Palestinian fathers.

CFDL also works with journalists and lawyers, giving them training in international and Egyptian resolutions regarding violence against women. A competition called Salamah & Amman (Safety and Security), aims at countering violence against women. Both male and female journalists are invited to write subjectively on this subject, which isn’t as logical as it sounds. Discriminatory views are very much ingrained in all Arab societies and can easily lead to contradictory statements by both genders. El Saeed: “Here’s an example of a headline: ‘An old lady abandons her children and leaves her home’. How can she be an old lady with small children.”
Last year, in the Official campaign 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign, CFDL teamed up with The Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (eipr) and Tadwien Center for Gender Studies to issue The theme of this year, which marks the 24th years of this campaign, is education “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Make Education Safe for All.”

In response to increasing pressures, the government launched the national strategy to combat violence against women in June 2015. A facilitation and an executive committee were created to review laws and administration decisions and to monitor and implement the plan, respectively. Although CFDL is one of the few civil society organizations to have been invited to provide input into the process, the committees are mostly composed of government bodies. CFDL has not yet been given access to review the final draft of the strategy. In light of this, and in an effort to develop a comprehensive and holistic national strategy,CFDL has worked now with another egyptian organizations to develop a more effective national strategy, including suggestions on the general framework, the role of state institutions and implementation.
“8"8th of March” Protest: After the revolution, CFDL as a members in alliance of Egyptian women's organizations started working more closely with women to promote their presence in the public sphere. Part of this effort included collaborating with other organizations such as the New Woman Foundation(NWF),the Centre for Women Legal Assistance (CEWLA), , El Nadeem Center for the Management and Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence, and Nazra for Feminist Studies) around the March 8th protest marking international women’s day. Being involved in this event brought CFDL closer to the women activists on the street that had begun their activism with the start of the Revolution. Through this experience, CFDL managed to establish direct contact with victims of mob assaults. In an effort to educate the world about what was happening to these women,we collected testimonies from victims and created sexual attacks,online booklets to highlight the horrendous nature of these mob The organization also has been a key partner in the provision of legal assistance in the proceedings of mass sexual violence that took place against Egyptian women in Tahrir Square in 2014.2013, through which it succeeded with El Nadeem Center for the Management and Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence, and Nazra for Feminist Studies to get severe judgments against offenders up to 25 years in prison.
Collaboration as a Cornerstone for Pushing for Women’s Rights:
CFDL recognizes that it is important to push for change on women’s rights through collaboration and collective power. As such, engaging with like-minded organizations in Egypt and in the region is a cornerstone of their approach to ensuring women’s rights and equality. To this end they have a number of partnerships and actively participate in several Egyptian networks, including:

I noticed a lump under my armpit. Initially it was miniature. The pain was not felt. Now rubbing and growing. My friends like do not. The other day found out that it can be serious malaise. But most likely, just fatty lump. Found understandable information about this lump. Now I'm not afraid of terrible diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail.
Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of viruses. Later arise balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. In this case there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this.

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

Dosage:
It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

Effects:
The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

Promises:
If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.
