Very few Western media outlets have been able to enter Libya since the protests erupted last week. Today, the country’s deputy foreign minister said that journalists who enter the country illegally will be considered outlaws and arrested if they don’t surrender to authorities. WBEZ’s Natalie Moore reported from Libya this summer as a fellow for Columbia College-Chicago’s Institute for the Study of Women and Gender in the Arts and Media on the country’s nascent women’s movement. Natalie offers her perspective on the protests and Colonel Muammar Qaddafi’s violent crackdown.
