This report presents four key issues that Libya should address to help secure women’s rights. Failure to deal with these issues properly will set back the progress women have made over the past two years, and hinder respect for women’s rights in the future. Now is the time to ensure that women can participate actively in the political process and that women’s rights are enshrined in Libyan law.
