One of the main challenges identified by SWMENA targeted NGOs was the stereotypical view of women’s image in Morocco in terms of their role in family and society. To get a sense of these attitudes, we asked questions such as support for women in politics, support for daughters in politics, allowing women to work outside the home, support/opposition for women involved in decision-making positions, and others. Survey data found that 73% of women strongly or somewhat agree that women are able to make their own decisions on whom to vote for in elections, yet 34% believe that men make better political leaders than women do. These questions give a sense of mentalities between groups in society such as between genders and between women of urban/rural areas, education levels, and age groups.
