Why are stories like this supposed to be shocking?? May I refer people to the stature women had under Gaddafi?? He had the best human rights record in all of Africa. Women could vote, and there are still videos of women working in assembling TV sets very happywith their status and their income. MORE THAN THIS, WOMEN DID NOT HAVE TO ENTER INTO A FORCED MARRIAGE. THEY COULD CHOSE THEIR OWN IMAM FOR BACKING ON THIS. SO MANY OF BBC STORIES ARE NOW HANDPICKED FOR SUPPORT TO THEIR INTERVENTION IN BRINGING DOWN A REGIME CRITICAL OF THE WESTERN GLOBAL AGENDA.

If you are really a Libyan - I believe you are fake - you know all adults had the right and duty to participate in the deliberation of their local Basic People's Congress (BPC). This is called direct democracy, not this bullshit we have around the world and now in Libya.
