Voices Of Resistance


For the first time, personal testimony by Moroccan women about winning liberation from the French and from ignorance.

These amazingly frank and courageous Islamic women are storytellers who lived through stirring times. Their active struggle against French colonialism challenged and redefined traditional Moroccan ideas about women's roles in society.

Along with their stories, VOICES OF RESISTANCE presents an introduction to each woman in terms of her family background and personal style. Allusions to Moroccan history and popular culture, including contemporary songs and poems, give readers a vivid sense of what their lives were like and are like today.
