History In The Making

Produced by

Egyptian writer, feminist, and physician Nawal El Saadawi has been dreaming of this moment almost all her life. For years, the 80-year-old fought the Egyptian government and religious extremists, often on her own. She faced prison sentences and death threats. But Nawal never gave up hope that her fellow Egyptians would join her fight. She spent the last couple of weeks on the streets and in Tahrir Square with young protestors and families, people from all walks of life. She talks with Dick Gordon about what it means to her to know that regime change has finally arrived.
