Morocco > Social Attitudes Toward Women Topic Brief

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.
