09.09.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

The issue of the right to abortion caused a polemic between the different components of women’s movement ; as it split public opinion into various tendencies. The various reports written by (inter)national institutions in concern of women and child care highlight the rising number of hazardous abortion. They also call attention to the fact that discrimination against women caused them various aspects of violence due to laws forbidding abortion except for some delicate cases. How does Moroccan feminist activism process vis-à-vis masculine domination and patriarchal dominance in relation with the achievement of women’s rights ? What are the ideological and ideal bases structuring feminist protesting movements ? Is it possible to talk about an agreement in feminist activism regarding abortion ? What types of strategies of resistance are being adopted by women and what are the limits of their effectiveness ? Such are the questions we attempt to approach in this article.
