J6 TR 1 MINAMs. Rhouch, rapporteur of the "Gender and New Generations Approach" working group, said that the CCME looked at issues that were considered as the first concern for migrant women in Europe.

The studies and research that have been done interest "the consequences of the application of the family code on Moroccans (Moudouwana) living abroad, the consequences of the kafala in migration, Moroccan seasonal spouses in Spain and unaccompanied minors in Europe, "she said.

Feminization is one of the most important mutations experienced by Moroccan immigration since the beginning of the 20th century "where women make up 50% of the Moroccans living abroad". Arriving in Europe through family reunification in the first half of the last century, the migrant woman now embarks alone  adventure to emigrate.

On the angle of unaccompanied minors, especially in Spain, Ms Rhouch said  "this population, which can be an extraordinary force for the countries of origin and host countries, can also, by lack of education and care, become an easy victim of delinquency and radicalization. "

J6 TR 1 AZMYMs. Azmy, for her part that the Moudouwana in the 2011 Constitution and the recent decision to open the profession of "adoul" to women are the sign of an e evolution for  women in Morocco, adding that "For the family code, for example, we still have to work to ensure its proper application in foreign countries."

Ms. Azmy spoke about "the aging of women in immigration who, in the event of divorce for example, find themselves without means of survival". This is one of the most noticeale issue in France where Moroccan migration has reached its fourth generation, she said, stating that "Moroccan women have different and specific problems in the society in which they live ".

Ms. Azmy also called for the commitment of men for women's causes because "feminism can not progress without the man who is at the center of all women's issues" and invited all actors and activists to persevere because "No on could have ever imagined, that in 2018, 12 French deputies would be of Moroccan origin ".
