Egypt Muslim Sisters rise with conservative vision - Article Photos 1/8

In this Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2012 photo, Azza el-Gharf of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party talks on her mobile phone at the party's office in Cairo, Egypt. El-Garf, a 47-year-old mother of seven who joined the Brotherhood when she was 15, said that a woman’s role in her family need not contradict with her participation in politics, saying that she balances these two responsibilities. The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt has brought with it a new group of female politicians who say they are determined to bring more women into leadership roles _ and at the same time want to consecrate a deeply conservative Islamic vision for women in Egypt.(AP Photo/Maya Alleruzzo)
