    Taharrush jamaʿi (Arabic: تحرش جماعي‎ taḥarrush jamāʿī, Egyptian pronunciation taḥarrush game'a, lit. "collective harassment") is a type of sexual harassment and sexual assault of women by groups of men on the street that may involve rape, beating and name-calling, groping, sexual invitations and robbery. The assault usually happens under the protective cover provided by large gatherings or crowds, typically mass events, including protests, rallies, concerts, or public festivals).

    The general term Taharrusch and further combinations like Taḥarrush el-ginsy (Arabic: تحرش جنسي‎ Sexual harassment) have played a controversial role in Egypt since the political turmoils in the 2000s. In the beginning, Egyptian security forces have been blamed to use sexual harassment on female activists and participants of public demonstrations and rallies. The behavior has however spread and being used by crowds of young men to harass female persons in the public space.
