Description

Muslim Brotherhood and SCAF politicians eating a woman's corpse. This image could be read in two ways. First, it suggests that women are always used and abused by politicians, no matter if they are religious, secular, nationalist, or other. Second, given that women are often meant to symbolise the nation, the image also suggests that Egypt, as a country, is being devoured by politicians of all stripes.
