Résumé
Women in rural southern Morocco face many barriers in their lives. The Near East Foundation (NEF) is trying to empower these women to play a strategic role in their own development by assisting them to participate more actively in civil society through the use of rural gender-development methodologies. They have created a modular approach to fit within the cultural context of southern Morocco. I conducted research in four villages in southern Morocco, including interviews, focus group meetings, surveys and shadowing of village woman. Through the analysis of this fieldwork, I have assessed the successes and limitations NEF has had in the first 3 years of its program implementation. I close with recommendations for the future of the NEF program.
