Earlier this week, Libya's ruling National Transitional Council published a draft electoral law stipulating that 10 per cent of assembly seats would be reserved for women. This means they would automatically be given 20 seats of the 200-member constituent assembly. However, human rights groups say the draft law does not go far enough and are calling for a much higher quota. RFI spoke to Alaa Murabit, founder of the Voice of Libyan Women, about the role she hopes women will play in Libya in the future.
