Morocco - 3

I mentioned yesterday the increased role of women as elected officials in Morocco. That follows the adoption, in 2004, of a new family code aiming at equality of the sexes, and the entry of women into many jobs, such as policing, where they had never been previously employed.

Meanwhile, some girls and women wear traditional dress and others Western clothes. I saw only a couple women fully veiled. The impression was of a country in transition.
