Why this is important
Much of the world has forgotten about Libya, now the initial revolution is ended, Gaddafi is dead, and the arms deals have been done. But the revolution continues, especially for women, who are now fighting for their right to participate in the Constitution Drafting Assembly. Proposed electoral laws include no quota, and will see women shut out of the process, denying their fundamental right to participate in their country’s transition.
A blog post about this very issue by the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom’s MENA project has now been blocked from inside Libya.
Do not stand for the silencing, join Libyan women, and urgently call on the international community – the United Nations system, diplomatic missions, and the global community of peace activists – to put pressure on the General National Congress and prevent its short-sighted and regressive proposal. Libya’s future depends on the full participation of all her citizens.
