Which Egyptian Parties Represent Women and Copts and Young People?

Posted on the 15 November 2011 by Warigia @WarigiaBowman
The purpose of this post is to compile research on which Egyptian parties represent women and Copts and young people. 
The RCA has 100 candidates under 40. The RCA has two women at the top of its lists, including Mervat Said Hanafi in Helwan.
The SDP and Socialist Coalition also have platforms strongly supportive of women and religious freedom.
The Free Egyptians and the SDP have sizable Copt participation. That is to be expected as they  are secular parties.
Wafd Party President al-Sayed al-Badawy says there are 23 Coptic candidates on the lists, and 52 female candidates on the lists.
Heba Fahmy of the Daily News says the the Democratic Alliance List includes 76 women and 2 Copts. About half of the female candidates are on the top of the list.
The MB is incredibly organized, and has their candidates listed on their facebook page. More on what the lists look like later.
