THE MUSLIM SISTERHOOD - Egypt, 2012

Founded in Egypt in 1933, the Muslim Sisterhood is one of many groups that form the powerful and well-structured organization of the Muslim Brotherhood. Just a few days before the second round of the presidential election in 2012, the Islamist candidate who was then elected president of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, was counting on the support of the women's wing of the organization. Close to 800,000 'sisters' had been mobilized during the campaign. (Part of the reportage: assignment for the Financial Times Weekend Magazine)
