Election day in Egypt comes after a week of deadly demonstrations.
Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy lived through a violent run-in with police– while covering the protests in Cairo's Tahrir Square. She says she was arrested, sexually assaulted and beaten.
This morning, she's back in the U.S. and watching the historic election in a post-Mubarak Egypt from afar.
She talks with CNN's Alina Cho about surviving abuse from security forces and the importance of today's vote.
