As we continue to prepare for the First Regional Workshop on Women’s Empowerment of the 2012 G8 Broader Middle East and North Africa (“BMENA”) Initiative, the League of Women Voters invites you to better get to know our BMENA nation co-chair, Tunisia. 

Tunisia, the country that ignited the Arab Spring revolutions, held peaceful elections last year.   National Public Radio’s Morning Edition is doing a series reviewing how the countries that staged revolutions last year are remaking themselves as they write new social rules, rebuild their economies, and establish new political systems, and write or rewrite their constitutions.  On a segment that aired today, the NPR team sat down with the country's new president, Moncef Marzouki, to discuss transitions in Tunisia.
