Libya: Women, Writers and Artists

Women in Libyan society are loved, respected and cared for as mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters and wives. The state guarantees freedom and equality between men and women but it still runs across cultural norms and traditions. Fozia Mohamed digs into the Libyan blogosphere for posts on women and here are her findings.

Touring Libyan Blogs: broken hearts country

  24 January 2008

If I were superstitious, I would have said that the evil eye has hit the Libyan bloggers.

Fozia Mohamed, our Libya volunteer, is back to blogging after a short break, with news and views from the Libyan blogosphere. Issues covered this week include readjusting to life in Libya after living in the UK, medical ethics and the Maqams - the resting places of 'Saints' and men of religion.

Touring Libyan Blogs: Health Sector, Old Ladies, Confrontating a Racist Bully, Globetrotting and Another Libyan Writer

The case of the Bulgarian nurses (and the Palestinian doctor) is already fading into history - while speculation rages if they have been bought off, whether they were guilty or not, if they were hostage to a political settlement in the New World Order or who is it exactly that defused the situation? One thing is sure on this side of the world is that their innocence or the lack of it has not been proven 100 per cent. However, in the interest of self preservation Libyans are moving on, writes Fozia Mohamed.

Touring Libyan Blogs: Is the Arabic Language Dead?

Libyan bloggers mourn the death of the Arabic language as more Libyans resort to blogging in English. What makes them blog in a language other than their mother tongue? What do they think of the phenomena? And what is the relationship between language, religion, globalisation and terrorism? Fozia Mohamed summarises the raging debate going on in her blogosphere here.
