Moroccan women victims of media stereotypes in Gulf countries (Mr Boussouf)

Tuesday, 08 December 2015

Mr. Abdellah Boussouf , Secretary General of the Council for the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME),  said in a recent interview with the moroccan daily paper « Akhbar El Youm » that the biggest challenge facing female Moroccan migrants in Gulf countries is stereotyping propagandized and propagated by the media, which overlook the women talents in these countries, who are ambassadors and role models in the countries of residence.

In the  interview, Mr. Boussouf noted that the international context shaken by the economic crisis repercussions pushed the Moroccan elite, holders of high degrees, towards Gulf countries, in lieu of going or staying in Europe or the US. This is due to the continual evolution of the Gulf countries, the major construction works and the tempting offers provided by these countries, as well as the cultural rapprochement and the historical ties uniting Morocco and these countries.

Mr. Boussouf, added that the Council seeks to dispel the stereotypes affecting Moroccan women of the Gulf, by showcasing the leading roles played by Moroccan women, their various contributions to the history of humanity and to the Moroccan culture, as well as their participation, shoulder to shoulder, with men in the development of their homeland.
