  • Members of the Tripoli Revolutionaries Shoura Council (TRSC), a military council of islamist and jihadist militias, want to ban female drivers unless they are accompanied by a male relative.
  • The group took the matter to Prime Minister of the Tripoli-based government, Khalifa Ghwell (of the new General National Council), last week to demand that his Tripoli based government approve such action.
  • Sources said the TRSC also demanded separate universities and schools for males and females, that women be replaced by males if the job they are hired for can be done by men
