Egyptian journalist Lamia Hamdin says she is “shocked” by the reaction to the photo of her.
This photo, of Egyptian reporter Lamia Hamdin, was uploaded to Facebook on Thursday when a Cairo University student named Mohamed Abdel Nasser saw her interviewing people on his campus.
Abdel Nasser said he had noticed the reporter carrying her son while conducting interviews. He created a hashtag which insulted the reporter, saying journalism is a job for those who couldn't get any other work.
Quickly, however, his post attracted comments by men who suggested that Hamdin, a woman, should be at home with her son.
