“We have come here to motivate the men to find Gaddafi and finish this revolution,” said 20-year-old Anwar Mohammed Hassan who joined with her sister the assembly of 10,000 other women in colorful scarves at the Tripoli's Martyr’s Square on Friday afternoon to celebrate their freedom from the oppressive regime, globalpost said.
They danced and sang, waved flags and threw balloons in the air, some painted their cheeks with rebels’ flag beaming with joyful smiles in a jubilant display of thanks and support to the men still fighting to liberate the country.
Hundreds of them spent tireless hours preparing food for the men on the frontline, while others smuggled guns, conveyed vital information about Gaddafi’s forces’ movements, and attend to scores of wounded.
From a platform, the women told their stories they experienced in the old regime, some spoke of their role in the revolution, others about the better future awaiting Libyan women, and some were just happy they were able to shout their beliefs to a live crowd that had not happened before.
A woman who sat at the edge of the crowd waiting for her husband said, "We are tired but happy…We have no water, no power, no phone connection, but the important thing is we have no Gaddafi!"
