When Hussein was frantically searching for his son in the final days of the 2011 revolution that toppled Libya’s dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, he visited a villa and discovered cells full of naked women who had been raped and tortured. Breaking the taboos of Libyan society, one of those women testified about her experience at a conference in Tripoli in May, moving the men listening to tears. In large part due to her brave testimony, Libya is now drafting a bill that Libya’s new leaders and NGOs believe is a world first: making rape during armed conflict a war crime.
