Berber women in Morocco : Between marginalization and loss of rights

With the International Women's Day, women continue their call for equal rights and duties with their male partners, while continuing to suffer marginalization, particularly "Amazigh" women.

Analysts say that there is no separation between Moroccan women and "Amazigh" women status, both suffering from male culture predominance, arguing that the majority of women talking "Amazigh" live in rural areas and suffer from marginalization, neglect and abandon because "many men move to the city, leaving women wearing the responsibilities of a hard life."

Projects calling for marginalized areas development still suffer delays.
"Amazigh” women lives a double injustice Assid Ahmed Said, "Amazigh" cause researcher, said that”Amazigh” speaking women continue to complain of what is considered a multilingual segregation "that leaves them marginalized in development projects announced by the State", explaining that used languages are those of the "elite" (Arabic and French), which makes “Amazigh” speaking women unable to integrate these projects.

It also describes their situation as "doubly oppressed" because they are "digested" in the gender equality field, in addition to "language marginalization", keeping them apart from French or Arabic speaking women, said the spokesman.

Ahmed Assid recommends the use of the "Amazigh" language in the fight against illiteracy and ignorance of women "rather than the state's insistence on maintaining their marginalization trying to educate them with other languages such as French and Arabic, "which would be a waste of money without any benefit to the state”.

Hattusas Abdellah: "The "Amazigh" women situation in 2013 is catastrophic” On the other hand, the spokesman Said Hattous said that only 1% of elite women are interested in the fight against sexism, equitable distribution and participation to avoid discrimination, "while 99% are indifferent to these requests and remain isolated from the debate. "

Hattous clarifies that the lack of misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the Family Code has led to negative social effects represented by Hattous by the high divorce rate and the lack of active participation in politics and civil society, calling on all responsible parties to simplify the content of the Code of women "who have a very high rate of illiteracy".

Tabaemrant: The Lives of Women "Amazigh" is unstable Fatima Shaho, "Amazigh" artist and parliamentarian said that "Amazigh" women live in suffering, especially those living in mountains and villages, whose lives are ”precarious and exhausting", arguing that the cost of daily life consumes their time and health.

Seeing "Amazigh" women seen as a symbol of patience, Tabaemrant asked, through contacts with the press, the empowerment of women in general, providing conditions that allow them to stand in each of the political, economic and social worlds to end their daily suffering in remote areas where the conditions for a decent life do not exist.
