    Women in Egypt speak up against sexual harassment --- India tries to put an end to acid attacks --- Online radio station Baladna provides hope to Syrians
    Producer: Sarah Steffen
    Fighting sexual harassment in EgyptAs political unrest continues, women are being increasingly harassed and abused. Activists have started to take matters into their own hands. HarassMap, a volunteer-based initiative, documents incidents; volunteers also patrol the streets, offer self-defense classes and try to change attitudes in a male-dominated society.

    Putting an end to acid attacksIndia's top court ruled that state authorities were to regulate the sale of acid, a substance often used in attacks on women - it burns the victim's skin and leads to horrible injuries. There are no official statistics, as acid attacks are not registered as distinctive crimes. DW spoke to Suneet Shukla, a campaign coordinator with Stop Acid Attacks.

    DW: Will stricter regulations curb acid attacks because acid is harder to get?
    Radio Baladna threatened by Syrian hackersIn the midst of the country's bloody civil war, Baladna FM tries to give Syrians hope. Working for the online station is no easy task though since Syria blocks the broadcast - and some of the reporters have been arrested because of their work. The radio station has also repeatedly come under attack by those who back Bashar Assad's regime.

    Africa's resources: Tanzania's goldTanzania ranks third on Africa's list of gold producers, behind South Africa and Ghana. But the country's people have seen little of the wealth as the mines are firmly in the hands of international companies. This has led to sometimes violent clashes, for example in the North Mara region on the border to Kenya.
    Report: Julia Hahn (presented by Jessie Wingard)
