Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- Moroccan women are largely excluded from public affairs, according to a recent study conducted by the Moroccan Organization for Family Equity.
The study found that an overwhelming 81.64% of women reported not being involved in managing public affairs, while 54.29% reported that women do not participate at all in public affairs.
The study also revealed that a significant majority of women (86%) had never run for electoral positions, and 89.45% had never led any organization or institution. The reasons for political disengagement among women were attributed to the neglect of their needs in public policies, marginalization and exclusion from public affairs, limited political awareness, and deprivation of rights.
Despite these barriers, the study found that 25.79% of women expressed a strong desire to run for elections in the future.
The study was conducted as part of the Fruitful Partnership program between the Moroccan Organization for Family Equity and the Support Fund for Women’s Representation of the Ministry of the Interior.
