In 2004, Morocco’s women took to the streets to demand greater recognition of their rights under the country’s law.

It is a battle they won, with the government reforming the country’s family code, known as Mudawana, to significantly improve the status of women.

But ten years later, the fight for gender equality is far from over, with issues such as polygamy, the right to abortion and access to education among the top concerns for the country’s feminist activists.

In celebration of International Women’s Day this Saturday, FRANCE 24 met with some of those continuing the battle for women’s rights in Morocco.
