The history of women in Morocco includes their lives from before, during, and after the arrival of Islam in the northwestern African country of Morocco. In 622 AD, as Islam arrived in Morocco, the women of Morocco received three basic rights under the Muslims' religion: the right to live, the right to be honored and to be respected as a mother, and the right to own business and be able to work.

In this book, Alison Baker has retrieved the nearly forgotten stories of Moroccan women who participated in their nation's resistance to French colonial rule. While directing a semester-abroad program in Morocco, Baker became interested in the lives of women who came of age during the nationalist movement of the 1940s and 1950s. Baker soon discovered that the standard histories of Morocco contain little or no information on the activities of women in the nationalist movement. Yet, many of the Moroccan women she encountered had rich memories of participating in it.

Providing new information on women's participation in the Moroccan independence movement, Voices of Resistance offers a rare opportunity to hear Moroccan women speak freely about their personal lives. Each woman is introduced in terms of her family background and personal style, and the interviews are given texture and context by references to Moroccan history and popular culture, including contemporary songs and poems. These women are storytellers, and they lived through stirring times. Their active struggle against French colonialism also challenged and redefined traditional Moroccan ideas about women's roles in society. The narratives reconstruct the little-known history of Moroccan feminism and nationalism, and probe the lives of a remarkable group of Islamic women whose voices have never been heard until now.

I loved this book. Being of Moroccan descent myself I was delighted to find what I consider to be an all too rare book about Moroccan womens' experiences. It is easy to read and the stories of the women are very personal. It also contains a wonderful collection of photos of the women interviewed. This book will appeal to those who enjoy hearing personal narratives and social history about ordinary people.
Unlike too many books on Arab women, this book is honest, non-judgemental and simply seeks to tell the life stories of women who lived through the Moroccan independence movement.
