Violence Against Women in Morocco
One of the most alarming issues in Muslim societies appears to be gender-based violence. The violence directed at women linked to their womanhood is gender-based. It is violence intended to establish or reinforce gender hierarchies and perpetuate inequalities. Violence against women seems to be a cause and a consequence of gender perceptions. Gender-based violence affects men’s and women’s perceptions of each other.
