Economic empowerment of Moroccan women beyond the drive for compassion

Bouchra Rahmouni | March 25, 2021

The Covid-19 health crisis exposed the limitations of our world-society. As a matter of fact, millennium challenges are impossible to face without women, and so are the pandemic’s impacts and the revolutionary upheaval it has and will continue to generate. On Women's Rights Day, one can only pause to reflect on the central role of Moroccan women in driving economic development. Many strides have been made on gender-equality in Morocco, including the 2011 Constitution, calling for parity and the fight against all forms of discrimination. The Royal Vision consistently prioritizes the interests of women, reflecting staunch commitment to women's empowerment at all levels. It is therefore essential to provide all appropriate instruments to support this ambition, notably a gender equality code for the labor market, with advanced regionalization as a main pillar of action and principal framework for women to flourish as active members of society and the economy.
