Egyptian women are growing increasingly angry and militant as they deal with one of the unintended consequences of the uprising _ an epidemic of sexual assault. The angry backlash, which includes self-defense courses and even threats of violent retaliation, is fueled by ultraconservative Islamists who suggest women invite assault by attending anti-government protests where they mix with men.
