On Friday, February 11, the country of Egypt broke out in pure, unadulterated jubilation and national pride when President Mubarak stepped down from nearly 30 years of autocratic power. For Egyptian citizens, the historic uprising is the type of momentous occasion that only unfolds once in a lifetime and, a day later, the liberation party is still going strong in Tahrir Square. It's exactly how I imagine the city of Chicago would look if the Cubs won the World Series. On a serious note, Mubarak's resignation marks one of the Middle East's most significant political power shifts in decades. Although there are still plenty of question marks and baby steps in how the country will move forward, youth leader and Google executive Wael Ghonim, (a BroBible Bro of the Week) promised "Egypt is going to be a fully democratic state." In honor of a country that just won a revolution and overthrew their president, we're paying tribute to Egypt's lovely starlets and female celebrities. Just in case you're heading to Cairo on Spring Break to hit up the sweet, post-Revolution party scene, here are 15 Egyptian beauties you need to know about.
