same old role for Women in the ‘new’ Libya

“Today we are one flesh, one national flesh. We have become united brothers as we have not been in the past” -Libya’s newest patriarch and National Transitional Council (NTC) leader Mustafa Abdul Jalil, October 24th, 2011.

the fact that women are not a part of this ‘flesh’, nor that they seem to have escaped the psyche of the new leaders is not all. guess what else? The ban on the number of wives you can have is to be lifted. Let the ‘brothers’ rejoice and take ownership of as many women as they like in order to celebrate their new government.

Real revolution, guys. Real, fucking revolution.
