Top Right: Salma Taghdi aka Asma Trabulsi, 22, stands at her family’s house with the radio that her and her father used to listen in on the movements of Qaddafi’s troops movements since the start of the Libyan Revolution in February. They recorded everything they heard in a desk calendar, writing the specific date and time.
Top Left: Asmaa Samy, 18, has been involved in the demonstrations since January 28th. "Many things have changed for us, we didn't used to have an outspoken role before, now we see the role of women."
Bottom Right: Hweida Mahmoud Shibadi, 40 and Nabila Abdelrahman Abu Ras, 40, are both lawyers in Tripoli. Hweida passed along information regarding Gaddafi's military movements to a family member who is apart of the NTC, which resulted in NATO airstrikes. Nabila helped organize Tripoli's first lawyers' demonstration in February and then, late in pregnancy, printed revolutionary leaflets that woman tossed from speeding cars. "Even if they don't give us our rights, we have the right to go out and demand them."
Bottom Left: Margaret Asante, 37, is originally from Ghana and has been living in Libya for the past 27 years. She owns three import/export shops in Tripoli, bringing African items to migrants in Libya. When the fighting came to Tripoli at the end of August “the environment totally changed, African migrants were being robbed in town,” says Margaret. “People came here because they thought it would be safer, but men came at night. They took people’s money, cell phones, they took my car.” Margaret brought items from her stores in Tripoli and set up a shop at Janzour Port for Migrants. “If I didn’t come, people weren’t going to eat.” Margaret is pictured with her two-year-old son Joshua Bafo Asante.
