Gender Parity: "A Great Opportunity for a Better Future"

Continuing our #PledgeForParity campaign commemorating International Women's Day and celebrating the important contributions of women in Morocco are Ali, Fatima, and Lhoussin.

Women in academia
Ali Akebli reminds us that Morrocan woman "Fatima al-Fihri promoted knowledge by building the first free university in the world".

 
















A better future
Fatima Zahra Znioi believes that a Pledge for Parity is a "great opportunity for a better future"

 
















"I support gender quality"
Male feminists are crucial to building parity and supporting women around the world. Thank you to Lhoussin Oukart for his simple but powerful statement of care.





We'll be sharing other Pledges for Parity from Morocco's youth over the next few days - stay tuned on social media for the newest from Dar Si Hmad:
