Development for Women? The 1981-85 Moroccan Plan Considered.
Howard-Merriam, Kathleen
The approach to improving the socioeconomic condition of women in rural Morocco is based on the premise that the family is the key social unit. Women, as the effective pillars of that unit, will automatically benefit from government sponsored family programs. The Moroccan woman's access to food, water, fuel, medical care, personal safety, and rest has been improved through food subsidies, nutrition programs, programs to improve potable water distribution, and an expanded paramedical and medical delivery system. Non-formal education programs are training agricultural women in modern methods of food production and processing. A cadre of women extension agents is being trained to communicate with rural women. Regarding vocational education, the Moroccan government is now more aware of the need to broaden women's range of marketable skills to include traditionally male skills. (RM)
