Migration and Gender in Morocco: The Impact of Migration on the Women Left Behind


Ennaji, Moha, and Fatima Sadiqi. 2008. Migration and Gender in Morocco: The Impact of Migration on the Women Left Behind. Trenton, NJ: Red Sea Press.

Authors: Moha Ennaji, Fatima Sadiqi


This book focuses on international migration, given its highly significant political, economic, social, and cultural repercussions on both Morocco and the receiving countries. While the book focuses on the issue of migration and gender in Morocco, it discusses gender issues, particularly the situation of the women left behind by male migrants. The book presents updated figures and information on Moroccan migrants and migration to Europe. It discusses the development of the migration phenomenon, especially the motives for migration and migration effects on the women left behind in matters of development and in social change. The findings reveal that migration has positive effects on Moroccan society as a whole, concretized in the important remittances (over 3.3 billion dollars) sent back home each year. (Amazon)
