Opinions on Gender Quotas

One of the objectives of the SWMENA survey in Morocco was to examine if ordinary citizens were supportive of legislation that is aimed to advance women’s rights and to promote their participation in political decision-making. For this reason, we asked respondents a series of questions about the system of gender quotas that was adopted in 2002, where 30 of the 325 seats in the Chamber of Representatives are reserved for female candidates.
