A different look at the Muslim Brotherhood

By Libby Lewis, CNN

(CNN) – Don’t try to tell Fatema Bayad that the Muslim Brotherhood’s against women. She grew up with a father who’s a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. She says her father backed her career ambitions all the way, from attending medical school, to demonstrating in Tahrir Square and traveling to New York alone to study. She’s now Egypt’s first neurosurgeon. She’s one thread of a fabric the Muslim Brotherhood, the original Islamist movement, is hoping to weave into the presidency. The choice is between the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, who wants to bring Islamic Sharia law to Egypt, and a man who symbolizes the regime of deposed dictator Hosni Mubarak.
