Presentation

Despite legislation designed to support equality and protect women's rights in Morocco, there is continuing discrimination and violation of these rights. In rural areas, less than one third of young women are educated at school and more than half are illiterate. In the job market, their situation is more insecure than that of men, and they are more likely to be unemployed. Moreover, violence against women has become very widespread and part of everyday life in recent years.

The "Echos des voix féminines" ["Echoes of women's voices"] project is designed to reach out to young women in rural areas, in the Marrakech-Safi region, in order to give them a voice, to shine a light on their own vision of society and allow them to express their hopes and plans. The project aims to create a mobile Internet-radio studio to produce reports, conduct interviews and make live debate broadcasts.

All the content produced will first be broadcast on the Internet radio station "Kech-Radio" of the AIC (Citizens' Initiatives Association), which is behind the project. It will also be used to develop advocacy tools to support the defence of women's rights in Morocco, aimed at local policymakers.

Verbatim
