Four days since French spe-
cial forces liberated Timbuktu,
there is a growing sense of
freedom - particularly among
women. The speed with which
women have claimed back their
freedom underscores one of
the advantages the French hold
against an elusive enemy on
unforgiving terrain: The popu-
lation here has long practiced a
moderate Islam rather than the
extremism of the militants.
Although Timbuktu has long
been a code word for the ends
of the earth, until recently its
women led a relatively mod-
ern existence, where they were
not required to be covered and
could socialize with men. That
changed abruptly last year, when
radical Islamists seized control
of the northern half of Mali in
the chaos after a coup in the dis-
When they first arrived,
Hawi, a tall, fast-talking, sassy
preteen girl, was just learn-
ing how to put on makeup. She
learned the hard way to wear the

Songhai language. Her slender
arm still bears the scar left'by

Her once-free life became
increasingly restricted, as did
that of her sisters and friends.
The Islamists showed no
mercy, beating everyone from
pregnant women to grand-
mothers to 9-year-old girls who
weren't fully covered. Even
talking to a brother on the front
stoop of a woman's own home
could get her in trouble.
Smoking, drinking and music
were banned. So was playing
soccer. The worst punishment
was reserved for love outside the
rules, and an unmarried couple
who had two children out of
wedlock was stoned to death in
one northern Malian town.
Fatouma Traore lives on
Street No. 415 in Timbuktu, the
road that runs directly in front of
the building where the Islamic
Tribunal operated in what was
once a luxury, boutique hotel.
A leaflet left in the dirt in the
courtyard set out eight rules for
how women should wear the veil.
Rule No. 1 is that the fabric
should cover the entire body.
Rule No. 2 is that it can't be
transparent. Rule No. 3 is that it
needs to be colorless. And finally,
Rule No. 8 states that a woman
should not perfume herself after
"We even bought a veil for
this baby," said the 21-year-old
Traore, picking up her 1-year-
old niece and hoisting her on one
hip. "Even if you are wearing the
veil and it happens to slip off and
you are trying to put it back on,
they hit you."
The French military launched
an intervention to oust the
Islamists from power in northern
