Activists have told Reuters that more than 30 women suffered organized sexual assaults by gangs of men in Cairo’s Tahrir square during Sunday’s anti-Morsi rally.

Tahrir Bodyguard, Fouada Watch and Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment (OpAntiSH) have been busy for the past week recruiting volunteers and training them to fight sexual harassment.

According to Reuters, men with hard hats reading “Tahrir Bodyguard” and green reflective vests patrolled the crowd. Perhaps there would have been many more sexual assaults Sunday, if not for these guards.
