Dr. Mohammed Issa, President of El-Mina Municipality said during speech he gave: "At a certain period, women have no right and were very weak. Men, whether oriental or occidental, treated them as a product that he can use as they want. This treatment may be resulted from taking the strength as a standard to measure the human capacities; therefore, men have more power especially because they are stronger than women.
