With social networking sites playing an important role in the anti-government protests in Egypt, an album portraying the role of Egypt's women was posted on Facebook Sunday.

The album, titled "Women of Egypt" shows various pictures of women taking part in the protests calling on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down.

"For everyone who has been asking where the women of Egypt are! I´m trying to compile all the photos with Egyptian women in them," the description of the album explained.

The description explained that the album was "a homage to all those women out there fighting, and whose voices and faces are hidden from the public eye!"
