Domestic Violence in Egypt
This aims at raising awareness about Domestic Violence and Abuse in Egypt. The operational definition of violence and abuse in this context is anything and everything that falls under the category of physical abuse, verbal harassment, economic, sexual and emotional abuse. The most up to date research possible will be provided to back up these hypothetical situations and i have also talked to two people who were in an abusive relationship before (they wish to remain anonymous) and i have used some of their stories also.
Disclaimer: Men also experience domestic abuse, however, considering the expected Egyptian gender masculine role, cases of men's domestic abuse are underreported. But this does not mean we should turn a blind eye to them and so i hope that this game raises awareness to the dangers of domestic abuse whether it be directed towards women, men or children. I would also like to point out that i do not mean to generalize about Egyptian men in the scenarios that will be given as i have already stated, there are abusive women out there just as there are men. The hypothetical situations that will be provided for the game are simply there to raise awareness about a pressing issue that is present in Egypt and everywhere around the world and is not meant to attack or marginalize either of the sexes.
The player will take on the role of Gamila. Gamila has been married to her high school sweetheart for 7 years and has a 5 year old son. Little did she know that her fairytale would soon become a nightmare when she came to see her husband for who he really was, an abuser. Despite knowing of his habit of lashing out she still chose to stay married to him and have his child because of the pressure the Egyptian society places on newly-weds to conceive. Note: you are financially dependent on him.
