One of the challenges facing Libya as it builds democracy following the fall of the Muammar Qadhafi regime is the reform of the security sector.

During the uprising, a number of Libyans took up arms to confront pro-Qadhafi government forces.

After the revolution, these fighters have to be either included in the national army and other parts of the security sector or reintegrated into civilian life.

Zahra Langhi, a gender specialist and civil society consultant tells UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha that Libyan women want to participate in this process.
