Our Bodies, Ourselves Project
Collectif Assiouar, a grassroots feminist organization in Rabat, Morocco, runs workshops for women in genital anatomy, physiology, feminist self defense and menopause. In these workshops, the women use art to explore their lives and express their needs. In 2017, the Collectif began translating and adapting the chapters on these topics from “Our Bodies, Ourselves” into French and Arabic. The booklet was published in spring 2023.

Community Action & Activism
The need for health education in Morocco is tremendous. The country has a high rate of poverty and illiteracy, especially among women, and the laws are unfavorable to women. Abortion, non-marital sexual intercourse, and homosexuality are all forbidden. According to Collectif Assiouar, “In these circumstances, it is essential to offer information for women on our bodies and our health.”
