The Superwomen of Libya
Play • 18 min

Protesting has its limits. At least that’s 23-year-old activist Rawan Khalfallah’s experience in Libya. Now, nine years after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, Rawan and her colleagues at Together We Build It are finding creative ways to advocate for peace and women’s rights, starting at home. Hear all about their “Super Nsaween” campaign, which uses comic strips to fight against the toxic gender stereotypes many women and girls face in their day-to-day lives. Follow Rawan’s initiative at @TWBI_org.

 Special thanks to Azza Abbaro, Omar Elba, Mahmoud Shabeeb (@ItIsMoody), Ayat Mneina (@AMneina), Amin, Ahmed and Enas for voicing the scene from the Super Nsaween comic strip.
