New Home Office country information note on women in Egypt

Being female does not on its own establish a need for international protection. In general, the level of violence and discrimination against women in Egypt will not in most cases amount to a real risk of persecution or serious harm. The onus is on the woman (or girl) to demonstrate that she would be personally at risk of gender-based violence.
