Hijab-wearing women 'facing discrimination' in Egypt
Discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, race, or class is prohibited by the Egyptian constitution.
According to a BBC investigation, some Egyptian businesses discriminate against women who wear the hijab.
It implies that a significant real estate developer forbids selling vacation homes to families where women are covered by the Islamic burqa.
A famous developer, La Vista, rejected an undercover reporter's request to purchase property six times because his wife wore the hijab.
However, when he arrived at the office by himself, he was informed that properties were immediately accessible.
La Vista declined requests for comment from the BBC.
The inquiry also uncovered places that forbid women wearing the veil from entering.
