Egyptian rapper Mayam Mahmoud, uses her music to advocate for women’s rights in Egypt


عايزين قانون يخلى المتبعتر يتلم
عايزين القانون اللى يبعد عن بناتنا كل الهم
هتقولى فيه قانون هقولك فين يا عم
عدم التفعيل مع الوجود زى الشخص الاصم
انا مش سيجارة مش زى ما بتقول عليه
مش اخرى دوسه ولا هسيبك تهين فيا
مش كرافته تخنقك بس تخليك محترم
وليه اصلا انا هعرفك لو كنت عديم الاحترام
فكرت تحط نفسك مكان بنت فالشارع
حاسه انها فريسه وعماله فخطوتها تسارع
لا وكمان لو حد عاكسها بيجيبو الغلط عليها
مش محترمه لو رديتى حتى كرمتك هتهينيها
فى شويه مننا شايفين الحل فالغطا
وان لو البنت ادارت مش هتكون متمرمطه
ماشى خلينا معاهم للاخر وعايزه اسألهم سؤال
مين اكتر بلد فيها حرمان؟ افغانستان
اتحكم انت فى نفسك ومتتحكمش فيا
لو نور الشمس حابسكـ قربكـ منى اذية
دلوقتى بان لنا مين اللى عليه الحق
ومين لما يقول انا صح هنقول لا
اتكلمى ما انتى صوتك عالى من زمان
هدى الحيطان دا انتى مصدر كل الامان
انتى اللى ضحيتى بطموحك علشان تربى العيال
وعشان تقديم لوظيفه بيكون فيه شرط الجمال
انتى اللى حياتك متقسمه تضحية واستغلال
بيجوزوكى للمال بدل اللى قلبك ليه ميال
من وهى صغيره بتحافظ على شكلها
علشان لازم تبقى حلوه وكله يغير منها
وبتكبر البنوته تبقى شاطره فالدراسه
بس برضو مش كفايه احنا عايزينلكـ جوازه
والمصطلحات تتقلب لو محترمه تبقى خايبه
لو اجتماعيه و ليها دور يبقى علطول اخلاقها سايبه
ماتقولى يالى ماشى وسايبنى عايزنى ليه حتة ديكور
ويوم ما اطالب بحقى بتودينى لدكتور
ما تقولى انت مين ولا شايف نفسكـ ايه
لو شايفنى كلى غلط طب منغيرى هتبقى ايه

i learned to move in a dark tunnel
sat still with deafening silence
held my own foreign body close
cared for neglected womb
oiled the driest parts
sang softly into winter wind
touched the cracks
i breathed deep into unknown territory

leaned in to unease
listened for music i could not hear
bent to…

Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.

His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.

Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.

"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."
