A lot of young Moroccan men migrate internally or abroad, searching for
better living conditions for themselves and their families, leaving their
wives, sisters and mothers behind. This study focuses on the impact of
male migration on women, who are left behind in the rural area of Morocco.
Taking into account that Moroccan households are based on patriarchal
principles, which also define male and female roles, it gives a close
analysis of Jorf, which is situated in the region of Tafilalet in
southeast Morocco.
