Learning to Weave the Threads of Honor: Understanding the Value of Female Schooling in Southern Morocco
Naji, Myriem
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v43 n4 p372-384 Dec 2012
This article is concerned with the role of formal education in the upward social mobility of women in the Sirwa, a marginal Berber region of southern Morocco where carpets are produced by women, and marketed by men. To explore why girls' education in weaving takes precedence over formal education, the article considers the place of women's education in the livelihood strategies of the household and the significance of marriage in women's social mobility.
