Libya: We Can Be Anything

An illustrated booklet produced as part of IWPR’s Ante Raeda (You are a Pioneer) programme encourages Libyans girls to aspire to any profession they want when they grow up. In an accessible cartoon format, the publication shows them that they can choose any job they like, from becoming a computer programmer to a politician, entrepreneur, or soldier.

The Coalition of Libyan Women Pioneers emerged from Ante Raeda’s partnership with eight civil society organisations working in the field of female empowerment. This booklet is part of their efforts to change the stereotypes of Libyan women, and portray them in a way that reflects their historical struggle and their great contributions.
