El Jadida - Generally, Moroccan women are not invested with continual cultural authority like men. In popular culture, they are stereotypically considered as inferior, capricious and untrustworthy. They by no means form a homogenous class. There are bourgeois and middle-class educated women who enjoy a larger degree of freedom by having access to the public domain and do not give much importance to ritual social outlets, but lots of women from the uneducated lower social strata and rural origins are relegated to a separate social existence and confined in the domestic sphere against a social background of a changing society thanks to the education of the masses and the call for modernization and female labor force.
